Spanish Biobank Network

Spanish Biobank Network (RNBB) is an initiative of the Carlos III Institute of Health that provides added value to the Spanish biobank group, with the aim of providing high scientific, technical and technological support to R&D&I projects in science and health technologies, as well as fostering innovation in health technologies, by providing human biological samples and associated data of excellent quality.

The RNBB is formed by  39 institutions from all over Spain, bringing together hospital biobanks, regional networks, networked biobanks, biobanks from the main Institutes of Health Research and biobanks of research centers and universities around the world Country. It is currently coordinated from the Center for Biomedical Research in Respiratory Diseases Network (CIBERES) whose headquarters are located at the Institut d’Investigació Sanitària Illes Balears (IdISBa).

SINCE 2009 WORKING IN NETWORK TO EASY ACCESS TO BIOLOGICAL SAMPLES OF HUMAN ORIGIN

Biological samples of human origin are essential to be able to advance the knowledge of diseases. The work of biobanks is to collect and guard human samples and their associated data, guaranteeing the highest quality, confidentiality of donors and complying with current ethical and legal regulations. Thus, biobanks have thousands of samples of different types and pathologies, including rare diseases and healthy donors that they make available to the scientific community so that they can develop their studies as soon as possible.
