NeuroResource Tissue Bank

Dr. Jia Newcombe

The NeuroResource tissue bank provides material for research on CNS diseases in which the immune system is involved in the pathogenesis, and also for studies on the normal brain and spinal cord.

NeuroResource accepts donations of CNS tissues from patients who have multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease, and from people without a neurological disease.

We are able to help researchers in the U.K. and abroad to carry out studies on the cause and treatment of these disorders. Samples are used for a wide spectrum of research projects employing techniques such as single cell PCR, tissue microarrays and proteomic-based analyses.
