Chinese brain bank recognized by government

The Zhejang University School of Medicine Brain Bank has recently been recognized by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Finance of the Peoples Republic of China as ‘The National Human Brain Bank for Health and Disease’.

Consequently, the Chinese brain bank will obtain support from the central government of China. ‘Great news!’, says Inge Huitinga, director of the Netherlands Brain Bank.

The Chinese brain bank, localized in Hanghzou, was founded according to the model of the Netherlands Brain Bank (NBB). The NBB also provided support during the development of the new brain bank.
