Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center

A biomaterial supply resource that acquires, processes, stores, and distributes postmortem brain specimens for brain research. Various types of brain tissue are collected, including those with neurological and psychiatric disorders, along with their parents, siblings and offspring. The HBTRC maintains an extensive collection of postmortem human brains from individuals with Huntington's chorea, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and other neurological disorders. In addition, the HBTRC also has a collection of normal-control specimens.
