To encourage greater collaboration between research organisations and a state-wide approach to key infrastructure, the Office for Health and Medical Research (OHMR) has developed a number of resources.

Biobank Registry

The biobank registry is the result of a survey conducted by OHMR, NSW Health Pathology, the Cancer Institute NSW and the NSW Cancer Biobanking Stakeholder Network.

The registry contains information provided by participating biobanks, including:
  • Classification of biobank types and collection focus
  • Sample types and numbers currently stored
  • Data types and numbers currently provided
  • Biobank contact names, details and websites

OHMR Innovator
