The HMGU Biobank with its worldwide unique and valuable collection of human biosamples is an important resource for scientists. We currently store over one million biosamples from population-based and clinical studies in a quality-controlled manner. We offer these biosamples and associated data to HMGU scientists and cooperation partners, who work in the areas of prevention, diagnosis and therapy of complex diseases.

Our mission is to make your biosample-based research easier!
