Making New Treatments Possible

BBMRI-ERIC is a European research infrastructure for biobanking. We bring together all the main players from the biobanking field – researchers, biobankers, industry, and patients – to boost biomedical research. To that end, we offer quality management services, support with ethical, legal and societal issues, and a number of online tools and software solutions. Ultimately, our goal is to make new treatments possible.

Ethical, legal and societal issues

How does the EU General Data Protection Regulation affect health research? Have I addressed all relevant topics in the compulsory Ethics Self-Assessment section of my proposal? We have a team of experts from all over Europe that offer guidance on ethical, legal, and societal issues (ELSI) that biobankers and researchers may encounter.

The GDPR and Health Research

Now that the new EU General Data Protection Regulation has entered into force, there are a lot of question marks around the use of data in health research. For this reason, BBMRI-ERIC has launched an initiative to draft a code of conduct for health research.

Quality Management

If we want researchers to be able to produce reliable findings, we need to make sure that they have access to samples and data of appropriate, defined quality. As a European research infrastructure, our ultimate goal is to make samples comparable across different countries and different biobanking systems.

Search samples and data online

We are operating the world’s largest biobank catalogue – the BBMRI-ERIC Directory. Anyone can use it to identify candidate biobanks to get access to samples and data sets
