The CHTN is comprised of five adult divisions based on geographical regions and one pediatric division that manages all investigator requests for pediatric specimens. The Midwestern Division, based at The Ohio State University and directed by Anil V. Parwani, MD, PhD, MBA, a professor in the Department of Pathology, includes Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, as well as Canada.
The CHTN divisions work both independently with individual investigators and together as a seamless operation to fulfill requests that are difficult to serve by any single division. The CHTN's unique informatics system allows each division to effectively communicate and network the needs of its investigators to all CHTN divisions. This tissue procurement network can collaboratively facilitate and fulfill an investigator's biospecimen request.
