Newcastle Biobanks

About

About Us

In Newcastle we have a number of Biobanks storing tissue for use in medical research.

Slides

We store a wide range of samples, in disease areas such as:

  • cancer
  • mitochondrial disease
  • orthopaedics (bone, joints)
  • neurodegenerative disease (e.g. Alzheimer’s).

Patients or healthy volunteers generously donate these samples for researchers to better understand diseases.
The samples are vital to allow researchers to develop new diagnostic tests, drugs and surgical techniques.
We also offer a wide range of services and facilities to support researchers with their work.
