Access to the research biobank (includes biopsies, frozen tissue/cells, blood samples, buccal, urine, feces, hair) for research purposes is only given to research projects with prior approval from the Norwegian Regional Ethics Committee (REC). You will find more information about how to obtain REC approval here: https://helseforskning.etikkom.no/?_ikbLanguageCode=us. Once you have REC approval, you can send an application to The Norwegian Childhood Biobank requesting access to the diagnostic biobank and research services.
