Safety and Security of CHTN Investigator Data

The Cooperative Human Tissue Network (CHTN) takes the responsibility to protect the safety and security of an Investigator’s research and personal data, such as applications, projects, tissue requests and data. The CHTN will not release Investigator’s information to other CHTN Investigators or resources that are not directly related to the operations of the network. CHTN operates as a network and shares Investigator information only among the CHTN sites for the purpose of fulfilling an Investigator’s request.

For the evaluation of our program the CHTN also must disclose research abstracts to our funding resource, the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
