Request Samples

A critical component of BioFIND is the standardized, longitudinal collection of biospecimens, which include plasma, blood, urine, saliva, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), DNA and RNA. Investigators interested in incorporating BioFIND samples in their biomarker research can review an inventory of the available biospecimens by visiting the NINDS Repository at Coriell.

Clinical data and biospecimens from BioFIND are now available for request. To request access to available BioFIND samples, please visit the National Institue of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, or email resources@michaeljfox.org for additional information.

The table below is an inventory of the number and type of biospecimen subject samples collected and currently available for analysis.
