Biobank Resources

Improved translational research opportunities are greatly limited by the availability of high quality biospecimens. While biobanks offer access to those crucial samples, most of the efforts have been in the accumulation and quality of the biospecimens collected and not in expansion of its use. To bridge the gap between these core resources and its users, there is a need to increase awareness of existing biobanks and, at the same time, develop a network of user centric resources. The following veterinary biobanks are engaged in a pilot study to gauge the awareness and interest of biobanks across disciplines:
