Request Tissue and Form

The Nebraska Cancer Analytic Research System (NECARES) database was created to catalog tissue in the PTB via the Cancer Synoptic Worksheets and utilizing SNOMED encoding. These standardized reports generated by pathologists as a part of standard patient care allow for easy searching of a number of prognostic and descriptive variables of tumors from more than 84 organ systems. The goal of NECARES is to represent the data in a way that is useful to researchers.

NECARES was developed by the team of Dr. Scott Campbell, Dr. James Campbell, Phil Colbert and Jay Pedersen.  For more information about the team’s other projects, click here.

Requisition for Specimens
If the specimens requested are available in the PTB, investigators will submit a completed request form to the PTB personnel.
