Accessing Samples

How do I access samples for my research project?

  1. Download and complete the application.  You will need to provide some basic information regarding the extent and needs of your research project.
  2. Return your completed form to Dr. Purnima Guda, Electronic Health Records Core, for feasibility review.  Feasibility review is necessary to determine whether the Nebraska Biobank contains sufficient number and type of samples to meet your proposed research project needs.
  3. Once your request passes feasibility review it will be sent on to the Biobank Review Committee for final approval. 
  4. You will be notified when your request has been reviewed by the committee and arrangements to transfer or receive your requested samples will be made at that time.  A signed Material Transfer Agreement will be required before samples can be released.
