Welcome to the Penn Medicine BioBank

At the Penn Medicine BioBank, we help researchers study diseases. We gather samples like blood and tissue from Penn Medicine patient volunteers. These samples help scientists find better ways to diagnose, treat, and maybe even stop or cure diseases. As one of the world’s top research institutions, Penn Medicine is dedicated to the advancement of science. Our goal is to combine cutting-edge research and excellent patient care. Our work as researchers is inspired by the lives and stories of real patients. We rely on partnerships with our patients to make breathtaking discoveries in medicine. To that end, we invite you to partner with us and help impact the healthcare of future generations by participating in the Penn Medicine BioBank.
