Open Science Clinical Biological Imaging and Genetic Repository

Accelerating translational research on neurological diseases

The Neuro’s C-BIG Repository is an Open-Science collection of biological samples, clinical information, imaging, and genetic data from patients with neurological disease as well as from healthy control subjects.  This platform was created to allow patients to actively participate in advancing our understanding of the diseases affecting them, and reflects the vision of Dr. Penfield when he founded The Neuro.

This unique collection of samples will empower researchers to develop insights into the biology underlying neurological disease, and facilitate the development of new treatments for patient’s with neurological diseases.

Data and samples collected in the C-BIG Repository will be made available to research teams with scientifically and ethically valid proposals around the world, congruent with Open Science principles.
