The Australian Bone Marrow Failure Biobank

2020-2025 (Grant): The Australian Bone Marrow Failure Biobank. Professor Melissa Southey, Biobanking Victoria, Monash University.

The establishment of the Australian Marrow Failure Biobank, led by Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision, is a collaboration between Maddie’s Vision, Monash University Transfusion Research Unit and Biobanking Victoria. A biobank is a collection of stored patient samples which is utilised for further research. Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes are rare diseases for which available patient samples are also rare. The Australian Marrow Failure Bank will provide a central national repository for the collection of samples from patients with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes. Access to these tissue samples will vastly speed up the work of researchers Australia-wide, providing the necessary and vital tools for scientists to ask and answer the most complex of research questions, including how to best diagnose and treat Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.
