Welcome to Iowa NeuroBank Core


Funded by the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust, the Iowa NeuroBank will provide a core infrastructure in early 2021 to facilitate digital neuropathology research with human biospecimens. The Iowa NeuroBank will collect and manage human body fluids, brain tissues, and generate fibroblasts from human postmortem skin/dura to enable patient-specific cellular and tissue models. The Iowa NeuroBank will provide research support of clinical research and novel instrumentation from discovery to validation with a focus on high-throughput, spatial gene expression on tissue sections. This biorepository is connected with clinical records, macroscopic and microscopic imaging, and associated big data generated from the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and future users.
