Resource:Parkinsons UK Brain Bank

Name: Resource:Parkinsons UK Brain Bank
Description: The Parkinson's UK Brain Bank is the UK's largest brain bank dedicated to Parkinson's. We collect the brain, spinal cord and a sample of cerebrospinal fluid from people with and without Parkinson's after death. We supply tissue to researchers investigating Parkinson's in the UK and around the world who are working towards a cure for Parkinson's.

Vital research relies upon the generosity of donors and their families who make the vital gift of brain donation after death. Become a brain donor and help us to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Just one donated brain can be used in up to 50 different research studies. The Parkinson's UK Brain Bank is currently supporting more than 100 research projects. And we have more than 6,000 registered potential donors.

Our tissue is:

  • free - unlike other banks, we don't charge researchers for tissue
  • high quality - we collect most tissue within 24 hours of death
  • fast - we aim to supply tissue within 4 weeks
  • neuropathologically diagnosed - according to the latest criteria

And we can:

  • issue ethical approval for projects that fit our research criteria - saving you time
  • provide tissue suitable for all modern research techniques - including snap frozen and fixed samples
  • offer expertise and training to researchers working with human tissue
We don't just supply brain tissue. We also know a lot about our donors, which means we can provide tissue to match your project. Donated tissue come with clinical notes from the healthcare team. And every donor provides details of their symptoms, medical history, lifestyle and medications. This makes our offer of tissue and information unique.
