Andalusian Public Health System Biobank

The Andalusian Public Health System Biobank is an initiative of the Andalusian Regional Ministry of Health to promote biomedical research and protect the rights of citizens who donate their samples and associated data for research. The Andalusian Biobank is organized as a network made up of nodes linked to health institutions in each province, with decentralized activity but with a common ethical-legal framework and an comprehensive Quality Management System. Additionally, the Coordinating Node in Granada is a support platform in charge of the electronic database configuration and management, training, dissemination, quality, research and innovation activities, and monitoring of the nodes, as well as the functions derived from the ISCIII National Stem Cell Bank.
