What is BBMRI-NL’s Request Portal Podium? 

Podium is an online one-stop-shop to request samples, images and data from multiple national health registries, health databases, image archives and biobanks.

Why BBMRI-NL’s Request Portal Podium?

Podium was set up to facilitate access for researchers to bio-material, clinical images and health data and to allow linkage of data, samples and/or images on subject-level across different biobanks and registries. With the portal researchers will have a single online entry point to request what they need for their research. This will facilitate and stimulate efficient, optimal and shared use of the available resources within the Netherlands.

Intended users

The request portal was set up for researchers in need of health data, samples and/or images; and for biobanks/organizations and National Health Registries in need of a tool to manage their own ‘in house’ requests as well as linked requests.

Status of BBMRI-NL’s Request Portal Podium

The beta version of Podium was launched in December 2017, including the following organizations: PALGA, PHARMO, BIOS, GoNL and Parelsnoer Institute. Podium will be enriched with more registries, biobanks, image archives, cohorts and data in the coming year. Is your organization not yet part of Podium? Please contact the TraIT/BBMRI Service desk, to have your organization added to Podium.
