Australian Brain Bank Network

The Australian Brain Bank Network (ABBN) is a collaboration between brain banks across Australia to optimise collection, handling and distribution of post mortem human brain tissue and related samples for the conduct of research into brain and mind disorders. The ABBN also provides a neuropathological diagnostic service (excluding the NSW Brain Bank Network), and supports education for medical and allied health professionals.

Just as organ donation is a gift of life to someone with organ failure, post mortem brain donation for medical research is a precious gift that will lead to advances in the treatment and prevention of brain disorders and diseases.
