Project S02 deals with the centralization of registries and biobanks from different centers into one common research center. Using a coordinated approach they document patients with adrenal tumours and diseases as required for the research protocols within the CRC/TRR. Furthermore they want to collect biosamples from patients using the highest possible standards. These approaches help in developing a good infrastructure for clinical studies and trails for future projects. This will also provide a strong basis of support for career development of young clinician scientist.
Patient cohorts and biobanks
(I) Identify, prospectively phenotype and document patients with adrenal tumours and diseases as required for the research protocols within the CRC/TRR and in conjunction with the virtual translational research environment supported under the INF01 project.
(II) Prospectively collect biosamples from patients using the highest possible standards concerning pre-analytical processing, storage and retrieval of probes.
(III) Provide the local organisational and personal infrastructure to establish and support further clinical studies and trials related to adrenal diseases, as required for the translational research activities of all CRC/TRR members.
(IV) Provide young clinician scientists with opportunities for involvement in CRC/TRR projects that will extend and expand their research career prospects.
