2015 Nebraska Biobank RFA  
Eligibility:  All University of Nebraska faculty.
Submission requirement:  Nebraska Biobank Application

Background:  The Nebraska Biobank is a new University of Nebraska resource funded, in part, by the Nebraska Research Initiative and developed by University of Nebraska Medical Center with The Nebraska Medical Center.  The biobank samples are de-identified (and thus IRB approval is not required for their use) but linked to data abstracted to health data including age, sex, race/ethnicity, smoking status, estimated geographic location, medications, diagnoses, and laboratory data.  DNA and serum is available from samples that were kept at 4oC for 48 hours prior to storage at -80oC.
