The GHTM/IHMT biobank – Biotropical Resources -, created in late 2016, is prepared to receive and provide biological samples, by strictly following the confidentiality ethical issues and the international best practice guidelines on management of such infrastructures.
The Biotropical Resources is a strategic tool for the development of the research in the area of Health Sciences, especially on Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine.
The biobank has excellent storage and preservation conditions of biological samples at low temperatures -4ºC, -20ºC, -80ºC or -180ºC (cryopreservation), directly contributing to the improvement of the availability of biological resources to the IHMT researchers (or external), as well as to companies actively involved in the development of new diagnostic tests and new therapies.
The Biotropical Resources is coordinated by the Researcher Ana Paula Arez (Coordinator) and Post Doc Ana Tavares (Technical Coordinator), encompassing a Scientific Committee (which includes a member of the IHMT Ethics Council), a Technical Committee and external Consultants.
IHMT and GHTM develop consultancy services in the areas of epidemiology, health systems, bio statistics, health programs, evaluation, health economics and human resources for health, among others.
