Not-for-profit and government-funded researchers worldwide benefit from highly subsidiszed rates. By reducing cost as a barrier to access, OTB can better fulfil its mandate to support cancer research.
The access fees extended to this category of researchers are below cost, with Ontario academic researchers at OTB’s partner institutions receiving the deepest discount. In general, academic researchers remit an estimated 5-40 per cent of the average cost of collection, with OTB covering the remainder of the cost as an in-kind contribution. This is made possible through OTB’s core funding provided through the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.
Example Sample Access Fees* for Academic Researchers (80-95% subsidy):
- Basic data and blood ranges from $15-$65/donor
- Basic data and frozen tissue ranges from $30-$95/donor
- Full data and frozen tissue ranges from $53-$140/donor
*Final cost is dependent on researcher category, location, and type of materials. Please contact OTB directly for more information or a detailed quote customized to your research needs.
