Video about biobanks on the Guidance Function’s website

The Guidance Function offers first-level guidance on the requirements and permissions needed when applying for health data.
As a part of our services, the Guidance Function have conducted a series of webinars during the spring of 2023. The webinar topics referred to different data sources and the requirements and processes that a researcher can encounter when applying for different types of data.
Due to high demand, the Guidance Function has made videos of the webinars, which have been continuously launched on the Guidance function’s website.
There are already videos on the following topics on the website:

  • Clinical quality databases
  • Clinical trials
  • Patient record data
  • Register data

The newest and final addition is our video on biobanks.

The video provides an introduction to the most essential aspects of biobanks and how biobanks can be used in research with health data, as well as information about Bio- and Genome Bank Denmark and the Danish National Biobank.
You can find the videos here on our website (in Danish): Videoer af webinarer | Vejledningsfunktionen.
English versions of the recordings is in progress and will be launched during the fall of 2023.

We hope that this initiative can contribute with knowledge that can simplify access to health data.

The Guidance Function services are free for both public and private clinicians and researchers, Danish as well as foreign.
