Field 7 – Access to human samples and data

The services provided in this field will facilitate access to human biological samples and data, through the provision of (a) retrospective and on demand collections of high-quality biological material; (b) high-quality associated data (i.e., OMICS, and clinical image data); and (c) Provision of state-of-the-art scientific advice to optimise the use of retrospective data and samples in cancer research.
The multi-dimensional data generated through these services will be eventually fed into federated data platforms to enable access, use, reuse and sharing of cancer-related data according to FAIR principles. This will allow to accelerate the possibilities for cross-European federated analyses of cancer-related data.
