Cancer researchers will have easier access to biological samples used to conduct leading-edge research that may lead to new cancer treatments thanks to a Maine Cancer Foundation grant that will enhance collaboration between Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) and Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) Cancer Care. Each organization will receive $200,000 to improve their biorepositories (also known as Biobanks), which are programs that distribute biospecimens (patient tissue samples) to researchers.
