Brain samples for scientific research
This website is aimed at researchers who are interested in obtaining brain samples. The NBB has an open access policy and researchers affiliated to universities, other non-profit organizations, and pharmaceutical companies from all over the world can apply for samples. A scientific committee reviews all applications based on scientific quality and feasibility. This website provides information about how brain samples are obtained from brain donors, what types of samples are available, and how researchers can request samples.
