ICU researchers receive grants for biobank
Researchers Associate Professor Anthony Delaney, Dr Tessa Garside and Dr Christopher Andersen have received two grants for their intensive care unit biobank research projects.
The team received grants for two projects: Australian Brain Injury Biobank and Registry (Neurological injury) (ABIBaR) and Critical Illness, Inflammation and Immunology Biobank (CI3 Biobank). Both projects are through the NSW Health Statewide Biobank, where the grants will be used to collect and store biospecimens from patients who choose to opt into the projects.
The ABIBaR project’s objective is to develop a biobank collecting and storing samples, like blood, from patients presenting with acute neurological injuries. Associate Professor Anthony Delaney said the findings of the project would hopefully lead to better clarity on prognosis and further refined treatment options. “We are hopeful that we will be
able to help provide an earlier and clearer prognosis for patients and their families,” he said. “Collecting the samples will allow us to determine ways to guide our treatment options.” The team hopes to eventually expand the projects across various hospitals and districts, which will help many patients and their families.
