KHCCBIO bank will be developed for the purpose of collecting, processing, storing and distributing high-quality, clinically annotated biospecimens from consented patients.
The Jordan-based biobank will standardize and define a collection of biological samples for patient-oriented research, to include hypothesis-driven collections, collections for questions arising, for the ultimate improvement of patient diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and leading to a personalized approach to healthcare.
KHCCBIO covers a range of support activities that are needed to establish, operate and maintain sustainably a cancer biobank. The biobank related activities will incorporate all current international guidelines and
best-in-class practices under an approved Quality Management System to procure, process and store biospecimens for the benefit of researchers in Jordan, its neighbouring countries, European researchers and researchers throughout the rest of the world. The KHCCBIO banking project has been conceived to create a world-class, ISO accredited biobank in the King Hussein Cancer Centre (KHCC), Amman, Jordan to be used for
research into new treatments for diseases.
