and disease.

It also leads the UK DNA Banking Network (UDBN), the biobanking facility that manages UK samples and associated data from key priority diseases, such as cancer, mental health, heart disease, ageing and diabetes.

UDBN has distributed more than 40,000 samples to labs worldwide. The facility was built with support from the Medical Research Council which continues to maintain it. The Council has recently announced that it plans to enter into discussions with other funders to explore their potential interest in developing joint biobanking facilities for large DNA sample collections.

Professor Bill Ollier, Director of CIGMR in Manchester, said: "We are pleased that The University of Manchester is continuing to play a key role in facilitating cutting-edge science in medical research and that MRC is committed to work along with other funders to develop the UK's biobanking infrastructure."
