  • Overview of CTSA Biobank Consortium
  • Executive Steering Committee
  • Technical/Administrative Expectations for Members
  • Automation in 5 years
  • Write us into the renewal
  • Benefits:
    • Sample sharing
    • Business plan and cost recovery model
overview ctsa biobank consortium
Overview - CTSA Biobank Consortium
  • CTSA Admin Supplement from 2008-2009
    • Began as a manual system: 48,634 patients / 188,057 samples; 70% of the biobank collected with standardized protocols; 12,000+ samples distributed to 46 researchers since 2002
    • Our goal: to develop a prototype to automate an online sample request management system for use locally and across multiple CTSA Centers using a federated model
  • Initial partnerships:

UTHSC-Houston UTHSC-San Antonio UT Southwestern

Duke University UC Davis UC San Francisco

  • Accomplishments:
    • Created and tested a prototype custom biobank software application and associated technologies including i2b2
    • Piloted the use of iMed Consent (electronic capture of patient consent variables)
    • Established a biobank executive steering committee to review and adopt agreed upon best practices from the biobanking industry
plans for increasing sample accrual and dissemination of local biobank
Increase local presence – enhance our website

Increase applicant recruitment (affordable)

Marketing campaign to newly funded investigators (shared sample and iMed consent processes) – MDACC and UT Dental

Pursue other funding opportunities

Plans for Increasing Sample Accrual and Dissemination of Local Biobank
a focused approach
A Focused Approach
  • TMC standardized approach for consenting, collecting, processing, and sharing for 70% (132,500 samples)
  • Executive Steering Committee meeting – sharing information and concerns, harmonizing policies
  • NCI best practices – consenting
  • Assist new biobank start-ups at TMC
moving toward a national effort
Moving Toward a National Effort

A national effort will not happen without the ability to communicate across biobanks at multiple institutions:

Available samples & related data at all participating institutions

Standard sample requests, approval, and sample release protocol

Processes to monitors sample receipt and study outcomes

The core software developed by the local biobank team is now operational

To permit users at multiple institutions easy, initial assess using their local log-in credentials

Other institutions are requesting to be participants in this effort

leading the national ctsa banking effort
Leading the National CTSA Banking Effort

Leading efforts to nationally to build consensus among members in selecting and incorporating standard policies for regulatory compliance into the software program

Using national recommendations from:

caBIG Data Sharing and International Capital (DISC) Workspace: Security Working Group and IRB Standards

National Cancer Institute (NCI), ISBER, OBBR, Rand Corp

First national biobanking effort to use the Federated Identity Management Policies

InCommon Federation to provide secure access to protected on-line resources among member institutions

executive steering committee
Executive Steering Committee
  • Sharing resulting adopted policies and procedures across participating CTSA centers
  • Members are administrative and informatics leaders of each participating site
  • Examples of policy topics:
    • Patient privacy and informed consent
    • Handling IRB issues across multiple sites
    • Standardized application request criteria
    • Minimum dataset expectations; sample and data distribution
    • Sample quality and disease representation
    • Ethical and scientific oversight; appeals process
    • Cost recovery and business plan
    • Final outcomes reporting
expectations for members part 1
Expectations for Members – Part 1
  • Executive oversight of site biobank team personnel and contributing sample owners
  • Participation on the executive steering committee by administrative and informatics leaders
  • Provide funding for personnel and technical resources (write your collaborative efforts into your CTSA renewal)
  • Sample related data, clinical data and patient consent variables must migrate from paper to electronic format; samples must be consented for secondary use; data must be validated
expectations for members part 2
Expectations for Members – Part 2
  • Appoint a Site Technical Coordinator to populate and maintain local biobank node components
  • Appoint a Site Database Coordinator to populate and maintain the local sample and consent databases; manage standard terminology
  • Appoint a Site Biobank Coordinator to function as primary contact for applicant and approved researchers; oversee local approval and distribution processes
benefits of membership
Benefits of Membership

Improved synergy and interactions among research efforts across multiple institutions with:

  • Sample sharing
  • A business plan and cost recovery model
  • An automated online sample request management system including an online sample and data search tool and embedded regulatory compliance
  • Lower costs for entry and maintenance than closed data models inherent in commercial software solutions
