Congratulations THI Biorepository Team!

Congratulations to our biorepository team for completing the College of American Pathologists (CAP) biorepository reaccreditation.  The Institute’s first accreditation was awarded in 2015 and today it remains the first and only biorepository in the state of Texas to earn the designation.
