OVC Biobank

A collection of biological samples (genetic material (DNA and/or RNA) and/or serum and/or human cellular material) from healthy volunteers enrolled in clinical research trials of both licensed and novel vaccines, infection challenge models and carriage studies. Samples cover both paediatric and adult populations. The OVC Biobank is managed by staff of the Oxford Vaccine Group, and this group is the primary user of the facility. However, external investigators will also be permitted to deposit samples, including cellular material, for future research related to immunisation, immunity and infectious diseases.
