BioSHaRE is a consortium of European leading biobanks and international researchers from all domains of biobanking science. The overall aim of the project is to build upon tools and methods available to achieve solutions for researchers to use pooled data from different cohort and biobank studies. This, in order to obtain the very large sample sizes needed to investigate current questions in multifactorial diseases. This aim is achieved through the development of harmonization and standardization tools, implementation of these tools and demonstration of their applicability.

 

As part of its mission, BioSHaRE will document information collected by participant biobanks and harmonize, integrate and co-analyse biobank-specific data to answer key research questions on chronic diseases.
