Public website

What is BBMRI-NL’s public website biobanken.nl? 

The website biobanken.nl provides information on biobanks and biobank research. 

Why BBMRI-NL’s public website biobanken.nl?

In response to the advice from the Patient and Public Advisory Council (December 2017), the website biobanken.nl has been renewed. The website aims to invite citizens and patients to actively support research. For example, by asking questions about research and/or finding answers to personal questions. The website also provides information on how to join research projects.

Biobanken.nl gives information on :

  1. General information on biobanks and data infrastructure and how they support personalized medicine research to show the public what is happening in the field. This is especially insightful when biobank infrastructure and biobanking research emerges in the media.
  2. The website offers a platform to support many (smaller) initiatives and campaigns. We invite patient organizations and biobanks to redirect their members or donors to the information on the website, once it’s updated.

Intended users

The website serves as an information platform for patients and other interested people. The website is in Dutch.
