Baylor Scott & White Health (BSWH) as the largest not-for-profit health system in Texas is uniquely positioned as one of the dominant cancer care providers to obtain baseline and follow-up biological samples from patients (e.g. tissue, blood, urine and stool) with well annotated clinical data from baseline through treatment, disease progression, and beyond. To realize this potential, the Texas Immuno-Oncology Biorepository (TIOB) was created. It is a state-wide multispecialty biorepository housed at both the Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Baylor University Medical Center and at the Vasicek Cancer Center in Temple Texas. The aim of this initiative is to harness the power of "big data" so we can help understand biological changes that occur in real-world patients across Texas.
