The Biobank of the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance specializes in the collection and storage of high-quality tissue specimens and live cell suspensions of human muscle, bone, cartilage, adipose, bone marrow, and other tissues. Furthermore, during our decade-long investigations into clinical conditions affecting orthopedic tissues, we collected numerous samples from pre-clinical models, such as the rabbit model for rotator cuff tear. To access samples for research, please fill out a sample request form.
