About the UK Brain Banks Network


"Many of the important advances in our understanding and treatment of human neurological disease over the last few decades have depended on the study of well characterised, carefully curated human brain tissue provided by brain banks. The analysis of human brain tissue remains essential for guiding and validating basic research – to formulate hypotheses and to test them in context." Professor Seth Love, Director of the UK Brain Bank Network
