NETS - Biospecimens
What are biospecimens and why are they important in drug development?
Biospecimens are biological samples collected from humans such as blood samples, tumor samples, or other tissues. When someone with a disease or condition has a biopsy, surgery, or other procedure, often a small amount of the specimen taken can be stored and used for later research. The specimens are used in biomedical research to learn about how disease affects the human body.
