Definition Brain and tissue bank that contains human Brain and tissue bank that contains human brain samples obtained from patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and other related neurodegenerative dementias and movement disorders. The "Penn Brain Bank" serves as a resource for scientists and researchers, providing access to tissue samples that are invaluable in research. Priority is given to researchers working on NIH-funded multi-component projects being conducted here at Penn or in collaboration with researchers here at Penn. Wherever possible, requests from outside researchers and scientists are honored. Currently, the "Penn Brain Bank" accepts donations only from those seeing a Penn physician or collaborator (Penn Alzheimer's Disease Center, Penn Memory Center, Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at Pennsylvania Hospital, Penn Udall Center for Parkinson's Research, Cognitive Neurology Clinic, and the Brain/Spinal Cord Donation Program at the ALS Center at Pennsylvania Hospital.) . Patients are enrolled as donors through their Penn physicians. For the biosample Request forms, follow the URL, http://www.med.upenn.edu/cndr/tissue.shtml. ttp://www.med.upenn.edu/cndr/tissue.shtml.
