Research Group Biobanking and Biomarker
Medical research is not conceivable without the investigation of biological material. For this reason there are special institutions and storage locations at the UKSH, known as "biobanks", where, for example, blood, urine and tissue samples and also extensive medical data are collected and stored for research purposes. Biobanks are of key importance for the development of new, improved diagnostic procedures and more precise treatment options for serious and sometimes incurable diseases such as cancer.
