Researchers and clinicians at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and other Mass General Brigham institutions are studying how genes, lifestyle, and other factors affect people’s health and contribute to disease. To do this research, we are asking patients at Mass General Brigham hospitals to participate in the Mass General Brigham Biobank (Mass General Brigham Biobank).
To join the Mass General Brigham Biobank you will be asked to provide blood samples linked to health information and family history data to be stored in a research sample and data repository. This state-of-the-art biobank will help researchers uncover the links between an individual’s genetics, family history, and environment in the development of disease and in people’s response to medications. The Mass General Brigham Biobank will help bring us one step closer to preventive and personalized medicine.
The Mass General Brigham Biobank team includes researchers from Mass General Brigham institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Our staff is committed to helping you with any questions you might have.
We contribute samples and data to new research initiatives on an ongoing basis. Please click here for recent news pertaining to these research initiatives and the Mass General Brigham Biobank.
