What is the Heart Tissue Bank?

The Heart Tissue Bank is a central biobank in which heart tissue of deceased donors is stored for scientific research. This heart tissue can be used to study how a healthy heart functions or what exactly goes wrong in various heart diseases. In this way, diseases can be diagnosed earlier and/or better and better treatments can be made possible. By registering as a donor with the Heart Tissue Bank, people give permission to have their hearts included in this biobank after death.
