A biobank is defined as a facility for the collection, preservation, storage and supply of biological samples and associated data, which follows standardized operating procedures and provides material for scientific and clinical use. The field of biobanking has changed tremendously over the past thirty years; now there are thousands of biobanks in the United States and around the world that provide biospecimen resources to researchers in academic and private sectors.


 How does the biobanking process work? This video, produced by the Park Media Lab, and made possible by a 2017 pilot grant from the Clinical and Translational Science Award One Health Alliance, explains how biobanks work.
