The HMSTrust Biobank

NRL is proud of its partnership with St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research (SVI) in housing the HMSTrust biobank onsite. Recently, media outlets reported that SVI has launched a ‘Living Biobank’, to support research into diseases that affect Australians, including diabetes and cancer.

SVI’s recently established Living Biobank, and the HMSTrust Biobank was launched in 2015 and is a mechanism for research that can potentially lead to the prevention, treatment or cure of a disease in an individual.

Samples collected for the Living Biobank may be used immediately for research projects, or ‘banked’ and kept for longer-term storage in the HMSTrust Biobank.

The SVI Biobank Program is a partnership between SVI, NRL and St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne.
