The Netherlands Brain Bank

The Netherlands Brain Bank (NBB) is a non-profit organization that collects human brain tissue of donors with a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, but also of non-diseased donors. This brain tissue, together with an anonymized summary of a donor’s medical record, is sent to scientific researchers worldwide, with the ultimate aim of increasing our understanding of the human brain and to develop therapies for neurological and psychiatric diseases.

This website is aimed at researchers who are interested in obtaining brain tissue from the NBB. It provides information about how brain tissue is obtained from brain donors, what types of tissue are available, and how researchers can apply for tissue.
