Canadian Biobank Map

The NMD4C is committed to strengthening the biobanking resources available to Canadian neuromuscular researchers. Future plans include the development of a virtual Canadian biobank, a central catalogue which will contain the neuromuscular samples available for research at the different biobanking sites.

While the virtual biobank is in development, the NMD4C biobanking group has identified eight Canadian neuromuscular biobanks that collect and prepare a variety of samples covering a range of neuromuscular diseases. Each of these sites has kindly provided information about what samples they collect and the conditions and policies for researchers to access them, which you can find listed on our interactive map.

If you know of any biobanks that we have missed or are involved in sample collection yourself and are interested in being listed on the NMD4C site and contributing to the virtual biobank catalogue, please let us know!
