The Biobanking and Molecular Resource Infrastructure of Sweden (BBMRI.se) is the Swedish node of BBMRI-ERIC. It became a national infrastructure in 2010 after an agreement between the Swedish Research Council and Karolinska Institutet. The collaboration encompasses all medical faculties in Sweden including Stockholm, Umeå, Uppsala, Örebro, Linköping, Gothenburg and Malmö/Lund. BBMRI.se will work nationally to optimise the collection, storage, withdrawals and analysis of biobank samples and data for medical research from patients and healthy volunteers. The goal is to provide better opportunities to detect diseases at an early stage and to facilitate biobank research.
The main activities include:
