FARE Biobank and Biomarker Discovery Center
About the Center
The FARE Clinical Network Biobank and Biomarker Discovery Center (BBDC) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center will house more than 1,000 privacy-protected specimens donated by patients. It serves as a tactical hub for biospecimens as well as a key resource for the design and implementation of food allergy-related biomarker research. The BBDC will foster unparalleled opportunities to understand food allergy mechanisms, discover potential treatments, and identify molecular markers for use in diagnosis and monitoring. The FARE BBDC will also serve as a model for data and biospecimen sharing among the food allergy research community.
