Biobanking and BioMolecular resources Research Infrastructure Austria
BBMRI.at is the Austrian Node of the European Biobanking Research Infrastructure BBMRI-ERIC and brings together all the main players from the biobanking field – researchers, biobankers, industry, and patients – to boost biomedical research.
BBMRI.at consists of and links Austrian universities and biobanks with the goal to establish a national biobanking research infrastructure for accelerating biomedical research.
BBMRI.at aims to establish a state-of-the-art biobanking infrastructure in Austria and to increase close cooperation and harmonization between biobanks. These are prerequisites to facilitating access and fostering the use of biological samples and data for academic and industrial research. Biologic samples and data collected in biobanks are valuable resources for innovations in personalized medicine, and development of biomarkers, diagnostics and therapeutics.
