University Biobank Limburg
From the start the long-term goal of this project was the establishment of a biobankfacility spanning the province of Limburg. The collaboration of the Jessa Hospital, the Hospital East-Limburg and Hasselt University to start up the University Biobank of Limburg (UBiLim) is a significant step towards achievement of that goal.
The Clinical Biobank of the Jessa Hospital acts as the central storage facility and the expertise of the Clinical Biobank serves as an important foundation for further development of UBiLim.
The creation of this provincial biobanking network will not only lead to a common infrastructure, but also to the availability of a high number of high-quality research samples, thereby optimally stimulating regional and (inter)national translational research. De development of this project is financed by “Limburg Sterk Merk”.
