UM Brain Endowment Bank
The UM Brain Endowment Bank is a Biobank, which links tissue specimens to patient data.
We are dedicated to supporting basic and clinical researchers, who study causes of brain disorders and the effects of aging. Advances in molecular genetics and pathology make it possible for researchers to identify causes and cures for brain disorders such as:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- ALS and Related Movement Disorders
- Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia
- Alcohol and Other Drug Dependencies
- Major Depression and Other Neurological and Psychiatric Conditions
