Controls and disease-specific samples for your research needs
We created the Mayo Clinic Biobank to address a pressing research need: finding controls with the quality that researchers require. Since it was established, the Mayo Clinic Biobank has grown to include a broad range of diseases present in the Mayo Clinic patient population. We not only can provide controls with the quality you demand but we also have access to common disease-specific samples that satisfy your research criteria.
- 50,000 patients
- Unique quality and depth of data
- Electronic Health Record (EHR) and patient-provided data
- Support for your biomarker discovery and validation
Our scientific staff at Mayo Clinic Bioservices have the expertise to guide you through our collection. We’ll work with you to determine which participants fulfill your study criteria.
"Research is a marathon – but access to the Biobank helps me function like a sprinter.”
Alex Parker, PhD, Mayo Clinic
Engaged participant community
The integrity of your research is vital. You need the assurance that collections you used in your research have been acquired and consented ethically. We have established a Community Advisory Board to ensure that we engage the participant community. Our program features:
- Patient-centered governance structure
- Strong network of participants
- Diverse Community Advisory Board membership, representing varied interests and backgrounds
- Long-term post-collection communication
Mayo Clinic has made a significant, long-term and ongoing investment in our Community Advisory Board for continued guidance of our program. You can pursue your scientific goals confident in the ethics of our approach.
