Biorepository Protocol Coordinator- RI Tegtmeier
The Biopathology Center (BPC) within The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital (NCH) is a primarily grant-funded biorepository and clinical laboratory with the objective of acquisition and long-term storage of a large number of cancerous, normal and diseased biospecimens and related data. These biospecimens are used for the purpose of supporting and facilitating cutting edge research and advancing clinical patient care. In accordance with provisions of approved protocols, the BPC serves as biorepositories for the Children's Oncology Group (COG), NRG Oncology, SWOG (formerly the Southwest Oncology Group), the Pediatric Division of the Cooperative Human Tissue Network (pCHTN), Experimental Therapeutics Clinical Trials Network (ETCTN), and other sponsor groups. This is a fast-paced, team-oriented laboratory that requires the ability to work well under pressure and maintain constant attention to detail. The position requires frequent communication via phone and email with submitting institutions, internal coordinating laboratories, and external investigators. This role does not perform hypothesis-based research on the biospecimens - we serve a supporting role to facilitate clinical testing and research. The Biorepository and Laboratory Coordinator is responsible for the development, coordination, and management of clinical trial studies in order to meet the requirements for the protocols, while following regulatory guidelines and departmental/institutional standard operating procedures. The position requires project coordination with the BPC Leadership, external organizations and clinical and research departments to manage and communicate the day to day activities of a study. The Biorepository and Laboratory Coordinator is also responsible for development and onboarding of new studies, as well as the coordination and execution of activities with ongoing studies.
