Cambridge Biorepository for Translational Medicine


Department of Surgery:

Located at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, The Department of Surgery has a strong clinical research emphasis and is home to the CBTM and several key collaborators. 

The Saeb-Parsy Lab

The Saeb-Parsy Lab receive tissue from the CBTM for the study of the; Function and immunogenicity of transplanted regenerative cellular therapies, Ischaemia-reperfusion injury in transplantation, safety and efficacy of cancer immunotherapies in humanised mouse models and Cryopreservation of multicellular aggregates and bioengineered tissues. 

The Kosmoliaptsis Lab

Focused on histocompatibility and immunogenetics, The Kosmoliaptsis Lab  currently receives tissue for the study of  the genetic and phenotypic characteristics of Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLAs) with epithelials.

The Pettigrew Lab: 

The Pettigrew Lab’s research focuses primarily on the basic science of transplant rejection, with an emphasis on how the specialised immune cells coordinate in the development of antibodies. The CBTM currently provides tissue to the Pettigrew Lab for the investigation of B cell trafficking during immune homeostasis.
