The repository is extremely fortunate to work with the following innovative and passionate collaborators across the Kansas City area. It's our pleasure to recount the many efforts made by our partners in thanks and appreciation.
Central to the repository's expansion efforts involves collaborating with the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA) sites to increase collections amongst different demographics. These breakthrough partnerships will develop an extraordinatry resource for Kansas City area scientists diligently working to advance medical science. We are extremely pleased to cooperate with dedicated local researchers and work towards the unified goal of creating an impressive Midwestern scientific community.
The partnering MCA site began in December 2014 with Truman Medical Center. This extraordinary step forward lends to a greater contection with our Missouri research partners. The repository could not be more pleased to work with such an exceptional group of people at Truman Medical Center.
For news publications about Truman please see the KUMC feature article about the Biobank Partnership, the featured article published in the February 12, 2015 Advances issue, and feature article in Flatland from the Hale Center at KCPT.
The repository couldn't be more delighted to work with our enthusiastic partners at the University of Kansas Alumni Association (KUAA) to arrange an annual donation event for community members to join the fight. KUAA graciously provides volunteers, materials, and communication efforts on behalf of the repository. All of these generous contributions allow the repository to give family members, friends, and community members the opportunity to participate in research to benefit society at large. Our warmest thanks to KUAA.
