UCSD Rady Children's Biorespository

The UCSD Rady Children's Biorespository is now fully integrated into Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego Institute for Genomic Medicine and is now commonly referred to as RCIGM Biorepository. We continue to be dedicated to supporting RCHSD researchers and the UCSD Pediatric Department Mission to conduct cutting-edge biomedical research targeting diseases that impact the health and potential of infants, children and adolescents and to advance pediatric medicine through the translation of research into improved patient care. The Biorepository serves as the centralized biospecimen processing and clinical data acquisition center.
