Brain Banking

Research utilizing human post-mortem brain tissue has played a critical role in propelling our knowledge of diseases and disorders of the nervous system .however declining autopsy rates combined with an increased demand for well-characterized, high-quality tissue requires a new approach to brain banking and better outreach and communication with stakeholders. The NBB will coordinate the collection, evaluation, processing, storage and distribution of nervous system tissue and associated clinical data via a federated network of brain and tissue repositories that span the United States in a transparent and standardized way for use by the broader research community for the study of neurological, psychiatric and developmental disorder. The U.S. National Institutes of Health is establishing a network of five brain Biobanks to unify and coordinate access to human brain tissue for neuroscience research. Goal of bio bank is to increase the availability of human disease and control brains and related bio specimens by increasing public awareness of the value of tissue donation for understanding brain disorders and facilitate the distribution of high-quality, well-characterized human-post mortem brain tissue for the research community.

According to estimates from the World Bank, global healthcare spending increased at a CAGR of 6.97% from 2003 to 2013, from USD 3,786 Billion in 2003 to USD 7,427 Billion in 2013. In this period, public healthcare spending increased at a CAGR of 7.28%, from USD 2,198 Billion in 2003 to USD 4,440 Billion in 2013. This high growth rate, along with the substantial size of healthcare spending, will act as an important driver for biobanks, hospitals and gene banks, which are the major end-user segments of the biopreservation media & equipment market.

Brain banks collect post-mortem human brains to foster research into human CNS function and disease. They have been indispensable for uncovering the secrets of many diseases, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. At a time when there are so many open questions in neuroscience and the incidence of brain diseases continues to increase in parallel with the aging of the population, brain banking remains at the heart of brain research.
