Oregon Brain Bank

Human Tissue Repository for Brain Research Studies

The Oregon Brain Bank was established in 1990 with the assistance of the Alzheimer's Research Alliance of Oregon.

The bank serves two main functions; first to provide a neuropathologic diagnosis of organic dementia's in a cohort of NIH sponsored research subjects and second to harvest, bank and disperse postmortem tissue for use in brain research.

Although the primary focus is on Alzheimer's, tissue from patients with Huntington's, Parkinson's, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Controls and other disorders are also available.
