Indiana Biobank

Overview of Services

The Indiana Biobank was established in July 2010 to create a "bank" of biological samples that are linked to participants' electronic medical information. The medical information includes over 8,000 variables encompassing clinical, laboratory and outcomes data. Collected samples and medical information are made available to scientists performing research that may ultimately improve the health of Hoosiers. The initial goal is to enroll 50,000 individuals in the Indiana Biobank. Over 14,000 individuals have already participated in the Indiana Biobank.

The Indiana Biobank is a part of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI). The CTSI is a statewide collaboration of scientists at Indiana University, Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame, as well as public and private partnerships. One of the goals of the CTSI is to help translate scientific discoveries made in the laboratory into new treatments for patients in Indiana and throughout the world.
