Resource:NeuroBiobank Munich

Name: Resource:NeuroBiobank Munich
Description: NeuroBiobank Munich was established in 1994 at the Institute of Neuropathology. The thematic emphasis of the NeuroBiobank Munich is Parkinson's disease and demential degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Epidemiological studies have shown that in 20% of all deaths in which a dementia is present, the suspected clinical diagnosis deviated from the post-mortem neuropathological diagnosis. To achieve greater diagnostic certainty, for instance in demential disorders, an autopsy should by all means be performed in cases of neurological-psychiatric diseases which could not be clarified clinically. Even when the clinical diagnosis in a disease courses is characterized as typical, it should also be verified post-mortem.

NeuroBiobank Munich coordinates the German national brain tissue bank (BrainNet) and the European brain tissue bank (BrainNet Europe).

NeuroBiobank Munich collects brain tissue from patients who died from various neurological and psychiatric diseases and make these tissues available for biochemical, molecular biological or other work groups with the aim of supporting research on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy of these diseases. Collected brains are clinically and neuropathologically well-characterized. The collection and distribution of brain tissue samples is an ongoing process.

NeuroBiobank Munich offers help with the organization and implementation of autopsies as well as with the neuropathologic diagnostics.
