BBMRI-NL biobanks

Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure The Netherlands

BBMRI-NL makes biomaterials, images and data from (longitudinal) research retrievable, accessible and exchangeable for research on the prevention and treatment of diseases (personalized health & medicine).

The Netherlands has more than 200 biobanks and cohorts that store the data of thousands of people. It concerns biomaterials, such as blood samples and tissues, images such as CT, MRI and PET scans, and data from hundreds of cohort studies.

The degree to which these data are accessible and exchangeable is extremely important if we are to gain insight into the factors that contribute to the cause and development of diseases and afflictions and the effect of interventions.
