Requests for tissue and associated clinical data must be made through the NeuroBioBank website, and will be reviewed by NIH Neurobiobank (NBB) and Brain Tissue Repository (BTR) staff in the order that they are received.

Requests for tissue must come from an institution that has an active Federal Wide Assurance (FWA) with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Office of Human Research Protection (OHRP). If you are uncertain of the FWA number for your institution, you can locate it through ORHP's website. If your institution does not currently have an FWA, guidance for filing one is provided by DHHS.

The process for obtaining tissue from the NBB is as follows.
