Over 75 worldwide studies involved GU BioBank specimens and/or data; some of these studies have been complete, while some are still ongoing.

UHN academic projects have priority in accessing GU BioBank specimens and/or data, but we also collaborate with external parties. External investigators gain access via collaboration with a UHN investigator.

External institutions using GU BioBank specimens in their research include both academic and non-academic parties, with academic projects having priority over non-academic collaborations.
