Biorepository COVID-19 Resources

In collaboration with the NHLBI Biorepository and the Trans-NIH AgingResearchBiobank Steering Committee, NHLBI has developed COVID-19 Biorepository FAQs to serve as a resource/reference for the scientific community. This includes descriptions of enhanced procedures employed by the Biorepository to ensure staff safety and to mitigate the potential of airborne exposure to COVID-19 virus particles, as well as references to CDC shipping guidelines for suspected and confirmed SARS-CoV-2 patient specimens, cultures, or isolates.

Other NIA Studies

Longitudinal and clinical studies on aging supported by the National Institute on Aging have generated collections of biospecimens and related phenotypic and clinical data to allow better understanding of the aging process and to promote advances in the development of prognostics, markers, and therapeutics for aging-related conditions.

About the NIA

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) leads the federal government in conducting and supporting research on aging and the health and well-being of older people. Our research ranges from the study of basic cellular changes that accompany the aging process to the examination of the biomedical, social, and behavioral aspects of growing older. Our main goal is to understand the nature of aging and the aging process, and diseases and conditions associated with growing older, in order to extend the healthy, active years of life.
