Researcher Resources

The VCU Brain Tissue Resource Facility serves the scientific community by supplying specific brain tissue to confirm research findings from animal tissues.  The tissue is open to all research studies, but preference will be given to NIH-funded programs.  If you wish to obtain tissue from the VCU BTRF, please fill out the tissue request form, specifying disease type, brain area and preservation method.  Forms can be faxed to (804) 828-2010.


Fees will be assessed to cover obtaining of tissue, storage and processing.  Please contact the Brain Tissue Resource Facility director for current fees.
