Objective: The RRCancer is a provincial network which includes support for biobanking. The Banque de données et de tissues (BTD) is an axis of this network, that focuses on solid tumors. Among its priorities, the network has identified ovarian and breast cancer which it supports directly. The BTD also provides infrastructure support to other solid tumor biobanks in the province of Quebec (including lung, prostate, head and neck, hepato-biliary and colon). The ovarian biobank at the Centre de recherche du CHUM is one of four major sites collects specimens related to ovarian cancer. The material of the biobank is available to researchers in Quebec and elsewhere based on specific conditions related both to ethics and to the mission of the network.
