German Biobank Alliance: Connecting Biobanks, Enabling better Research, Engaging the Community

 

The German Biobank Node (GBN) is a German biobank network consisting of eleven large university biobank sites. Under the umbrella of GBN, all biobank partners work together in the German Biobank Alliance (GBA) to support biomedical research with high-quality biomaterial samples and data. Thew Hannover Unified Biobank (HUB) is a partner in this alliance.

 

Together, they develop uniform quality standards, establish a networked IT structure and create legal and ethical guidelines for biobanking. In this way, they lay the foundation for the further development and quality assurance of biobanking in Germany and Europe. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) funds the network.

 

GBN also continues to be a partner in the European biobank network BBMRI-ERIC, which focuses on the networking and exchange of experience of biobanks within Europe.

 

The German Biobank Alliance (GBA) was initatted in 2017 by the germen biobank Node (GBN). Supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), GBN sees itself as a central cooperation platform for the German biobank community. Under the umbrella of GBN, eleven BMBF-funded biobanks and two IT development centers are working together in the German Biobank Alliance (GBA) to make existing biomaterials of various biobanks available across Europe for biomedical research.

German Biobank Alliance at a glance Eleven German biobanks have joined in the German Biobank Alliance. Together they store almost 14 million bio samples, which are available for research. By 2020, they will work on the fact that these samples and data can be exchanged between biobanks in Germany and Europe. Therefore IT infrastructures will be developed, quality standards will be implemented and legal and ethical standards will be harmonized.
