Manchester Brain Bank

Established in 1986 by Professor David Mann, the Manchester Brain Bank has underpinned much of the basic and clinical research into the spectrum of frontotemporal dementia that Manchester has pioneered over 30 years. The Brain Bank contains around 1,000 brains from patients with various neurodegenerative disorders and from healthy, but elderly, controls. Most brains have formalin-fixed and frozen tissue available for use in approved research. The Brain Bank is also part of the UK Brain Banks Network and uses dissection protocols established by the BrainNet Europe consortium.
