Oxford Musculoskeletal Biobank

The Oxford Musculoskeletal Biobank (OMB) is a resource of tissue and blood samples donated by patients for use in medical research (primarily musculoskeletal). The Biobank provides a simple and efficient way to collect and store samples according to regulatory requirements, and it ensures fair access to the samples. Samples will usually be used for research studies which may contribute to increasing the knowledge and understanding of musculoskeletal diseases in order to improve diagnosis and treatment, and ultimately patient care.

Existing samples:

  • Giant cell arteritis (disorder)
  • Osteoarthritis
