Should you be interested in a partnership and your biobank largely meets the above criteria, you can apply to join the alliance. The round of applications for the year 2020 runs from 15 January to 29 February 2020.
The application process is as follows:
- You complete our questionnaire and submit it by e-mail to germanbiobanknode@ in due time. charite.de
- We will discuss your application with you by phone in order to clarify any open questions.
- If necessary, we will arrange an appointment at your biobank in order to obtain more detailed information.
- Based on all available information, the Steering Committee will decide which biobanks are to be accepted into the German Biobank Alliance.
The inclusion of your biobank in the German Biobank Alliance (GBA) is not linked to any funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) or any other funders. While admission to the GBA itself is free, costs may arise for your biobank as a result of your membership (e.g. travel expenses for your participation in workshops).
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions, either via email (email@example.com) or by telephone (+49 30 450 – 536 347).
