Integrated Biorepository of H3Africa Uganda (IBRH3AU)

The NIH – Integrated Biorepository for H3Africa Uganda is a state-of-the-art facility whose ultimate goal is to develop a world class Biorepository of well annotated stored biospecimens widely available to the H3Africa Consortium, African and International researchers for genomic discovery projects. The information obtained from the genomic analysis of the samples allows researchers to develop or test new diagnostic tests, personalize treatment options, and develop new treatment methods. Over the course of this project, the Integrated Biorepository of H3Africa Uganda has developed capacity to perform biorepository services; collect/receive, process, store and ship Biospecimen as per international standards and has developed training resources in biorepository science and management. The IBRH3AU Biorepository has a well annotated collection of various Biospecimen (DNA, RNA, PBMCs, Serum, Plasma, e.t.c.) and associatedph enotypic data held at H3ABionet accessible through the NIH H3Africa data and Biospecimen accesscommittee (DBAC).
