Tissue Bank

Obstetrics and Gynecology Tissue Bank

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Tissue Bank, led by Professor Manish Patankar, PhD, of our Reproductive Sciences Division, is currently collecting obstetric tissue and fluid that would otherwise be discarded after delivery at Meriter Hospital.

Tissue samples will be used in research studies to learn more about conditions that affect women and babies during pregnancy. These samples may include umbilical cord tissue and blood, maternal blood and placenta. Participation in this study is purely voluntary and the identities of tissue donors will be protected. No extra hospital visits or procedures will be necessary.

Learn more about this important research. Mention this study to your Ob-Gyn provider or contact a research coordinator at (608) 417-4218.
