Who are we ?

The biobank

The Neuro-CEB Biobank is made of two entities:

  • The Neuro-CEB Association brings together the patients' associations and foundations that fund the projectfondation Vaincre Alzheimer, association France Parkinson, fondation ARSEP, ARSLA, Connaître les syndromes cérébelleux, France DFT.

  • The Neuro-CEB Biological Resource Center (BRC) collects, stores, and prepares the samples. The Neuro-CEB BRC is located in the Biological Ressource Platform of Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital (Paris, France).

A neuropathologists' network covering the French metropolitan territory is in charge of the post mortem removal of the brain, of its sampling and of the neuropathological diagnosis.

The Neuro-CEB biobank is certified AFNOR NFS 96-900 since 2010.
