We support UMCG researchers active in the field of cohort and biobank research. Contact our Servicedesk if you have questions or need help on any cohort or biobank related matters, for example on rules & regulations, sample & data access, legal matters, collaborations or standard procedures. We either answer your question or direct you to the right party.
We provide project-based, hands-on support to UMCG cohorts and biobanks to solve challenges and improve operations. Contact us for more information.
Starting a cohort or biobank
We support researchers aiming to start a new cohort or biobank. Through a structured approach we guide you through the required steps; thinking with you and linking you to the right experts and facilities in the UMCG. We will help you setup your cohort or biobank in the best way fitting to your research goals.
Quality & Auditing
We are developing a light-weight internal audit procedure for individual cohorts and biobanks. After the audit, we help you implement improvements. Contact us if you are interested to participate in our pilot rounds.
