SBB tissue request application review 2023-2024 Christmas shutdown

Please note that due to the Christmas period, SBB review of tissue request applications will temporarily shutdown from December 15, 2023 (last day) and re-start on January 15, 2024. No applications will be reviewed during this period.

In order to allow sufficient time for review before this shutdown period applications should be submitted by November 17, 2023. Amendments should be submitted by December 04, 2023. Please note that supply of tissue will still be subject to TTA approval from your institution, which may incur further delays.

The Sydney Brain Bank would like to thank you for your continued support throughout 2023.
