Vision,Mission And Objective

National Liver Disease Biobank

 

Vision

To build national medical research capacity, through biobank based science in India.

 

Mission

  • To develop an independent, open accessible, advanced national biobank facility, which could provide proficient biological sample storage, cataloguing, for ready reference and retrieval, high-end analytical services through skilled manpower along with human resource training in biobanking.
  • A nodal centre for translational and basic researchers to conduct thorough research, on longitudinal cohort bio-samples under one roof.

 

Objectives

  • To establish an independent National Biobank on Liver disease research, functioning testing of cryo preservation, analytical systems and implementation of quality assurance practices.
  • Nationwide capacity building in Liver disease research by sharing the services, informatics and strengthening competence and capabilities of stakeholders.
  • To attain partial sustenance model to deliver the excellence in biobanking services by adopting appropriate model by utilizing the world-class services and resources.
  • To undertake biobank based pilot projects and to expand the biobank based need and science in India.
