CHTN Highlights

Welcome to the CHTN

The Cooperative Human Tissue Network (CHTN) is a unique, NCI supported resource. The CHTN provides human tissues and fluids from routine procedures to investigators who utilize human biospecimens in their research. Unlike tissue banks, the CHTN works prospectively with each investigator to tailor specimen acquisition and processing to meet their specific project requirements. Because the CHTN is funded by the NCI, the CHTN is able to maintain nominal processing fees for its services.
