THI is First in Texas to Receive Biorepository Accreditation from the College of American Pathologists

Located in the heart of the largest medical complex in the world, the Texas Heart Institute’s Biorepository Core — under the direction of Dr. Doris Taylor — is the first biorepository in Texas to receive accreditation from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Biorepository Accreditation Program. Designed to improve the quality and consistency of facilities that collect, process, store and distribute biospecimens for research, it is the first accreditation program for standardizing biorepository services. CAP Accreditation is awarded to facilities that meet the highest standards of excellence in quality laboratory practices.

The Texas Heart Institute Biorepository team is part of our Regenerative Medicine Research department, which is led by Dr. Taylor.
