BBMRI-NL2.0: building on the Dutch biobank

On Tuesday 1 July, BBMRI-NL2.0 was awarded €9.8 million as part of the National Roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures. It is one of the six facilities receiving a grant from NWO. The cheque was handed over during a ceremony at the Leiden University Medical Centre. Professor Cisca Wijmenga (UMCG) is director of this large-scale biobanking project.

BBMRI-NL joins forces with EPI2 and CTMM-TraIT in July 2014, BBMRI-NL embarks upon its second phase: BBMRI-NL2.0

The new endeavour comprises BBMRI-NL and all the biobanks connected with it, and joins forces with two other Dutch projects that aim to facilitate innovative biomedical research: the European Population Imaging Infrastructure (EPI2) and the Translational Research IT project of the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine (CTMM-TraIT). The goal: a truly nationally integrated ‘NL Biobank Research Facility’, offering fully integrated access for research on how genetic and environmental factors contribute to disease. The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, NWO, has awarded BBMRI-NL2.0 a grant of just over €9.8M as part of the National Roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures.
