Research Group Biobank (BB)

Due to many years of experience within KORA (Cooperative Health Research in the Region of Augsburg), our group has become an expert in all topics related to biobanking – such as ELSI (ethical, legal and social issues), biosample acquisition, processing and storage, data management and access to biosamples. Quality management is an important aspect in all these topics and a special focus of the group are studies on pre-analytical sample quality.

The Biobank of the Research Unit Molecular Epidemiology (AME) is a major resource for research in the fields of prevention, diagnosis and therapy of complex diseases.

Currently we are in the process of implementing the central HMGU biobank, a core facility that will provide services around biobanking for HMGU institutes and partners.

In addition, we are partner in a number of biobanking projects.
