List the major milestones that need to be in place before the first biospecimen case is "enrolled" into the Biorepository. (10 points). 7. MCB is one of few biobanks that offer a return of incidental research results to participants.

This information and other biospecimen information was linked to a person’s medical record. Describe the lifecycle of the data collected together with the biospecimens. (10 points). 11. Describe the process of access to biospecimens and data? Could outside researchers use the MCB database? What documents and oversight approvals were needed for the request of biospecimen or data use?
