Clinical trial provision

HCB are proud to be the research partners of NSW Health Pathology Hunter and as such are the first point of call for local trial units requiring tissue for study screening or enrolment. At present we provide services for both local investigator, cooperative and industry sponsored studies and our portfolio continues to grow.

HCB can assist you in facilitating clinical trials through the following services:

  • Designing collection protocols and establishing hierarchy for the cataloguing and storage of samples
  • Provision of archival tissue to trial units (pending consent and HREC approval)
  • Facilitating the transfer of samples from local study sites to central laboratories
  • Processing of trial specimens for investigator driven studies (including both fresh tissue and liquid samples)

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
