Neural Tissue Bank Inventory​

Neural tissue is a vital resource for researchers. At the University of Colorado, we understand that in order to do the research necessary to find cures for central nervous system diseases, we need to provide high quality tissue. The Neural Tissue Bank is a collection of all nervous system tissues collected during surgery. Our bank houses hundreds of tissues including tumors, brain tissue, dura, and various diseased specimens. We also collect matched blood, serum, urine, and have successfully established several cell lines. Please contact Dr. Michael Graner for inquiries about utilizing existing tissue and acquiring specific tissue for your needs.
