Overview

The Victorian Brain Bank (VBB) has the function of providing Australian and International researchers with easy access to clinically and neuropathologically well-characterised post-mortem human brains and related samples on which they can conduct analyses related to their fields of endeavour. Tissue is available from people diagnosed with a number of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, schizophrenia, depression, bi-polar disorder and normal controls. Tissue is available which is fresh frozen, and/or formalin fixed. Researchers can enquiry about obtaining tissue by contacting the VBBN coordinator, Fairlie Hinton at fairlie.hinton@florey.edu.au. A request for tissue application can then be sent onto the researcher.

The VBB also provides a vital neuropathological diagnostic service and supports continued education of medical and allied health professionals.

Access by:

  • Research collaboration.
  • Fee for service.
