All Biobanks

It’s our mission to provide the global scientific community with the most trusted biological samples available. The samples housed at Coriell represent the genetic diversity of humankind and offer researchers samples taken from individuals with the most common diseases, such as heart disease or Alzheimer’s disease, to the rarest genetic diseases known to science. We offer a variety of materials, including cell lines, DNA, and state-of-the-art induced pluripotent stem cells.

This resource was built over decades and would not be possible without the collaborating organizations which have entrusted us to maintain and distribute their samples.

NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository
The Human Genetic Cell Repository, sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, provides samples representing a variety of disease states, chromosomal abnormalities, apparently healthy individuals and many distinct human populations.
NINDS Human Genetics DNA and Cell Line Repository
The NINDS Human Genetics DNA and Cell Line Repository banks samples from subjects with cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, motor neuron disease, Parkinsonism, and Tourette Syndrome, as well as controls.
NIA Aging Cell Repository
Sponsored by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the AGING CELL REPOSITORY, is a resource facilitating cellular and molecular research studies on the mechanisms of aging and the degenerative processes associated with it.
NHGRI Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research
The National Human Genome Research Institute's mission encompass a broad range of studies aimed at understanding the structure and function of the human genome and its role in health and disease.
Allen Cell Collection
The Allen Cell Collection is a bank of human induced pluripotent stem cells which have been endogenously tagged with a fluorescent protein allowing researchers to see individual structures inside of healthy, living human cells with astonishing clarity.
Rett Syndrome Research Trust

The Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to curing Rett syndrome and is offering a new collection of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for use in research. 

American Diabetes Association, GENNID Study
The purpose of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), GENNID Study (Genetics of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, NIDDM) is to establish a national database and cell repository consisting of information and genetic material from families with well-documented NIDDM.
The Autism Research Resource 
The State of New Jersey funded the initiation of a genetic resource to support the study of autism in families where more than one child is affected or where one child is affected and one demonstrates another significant and related developmental disorder.
CHDI Repository
HD Community BioRepository is a secure, centralized repository that stores and distributes quality-controlled, reliable research reagents. Huntingtin DNAs are now available and antibodies, antigenic peptides, cell lines, and hybridomas will be added soon.
USIDNET Repository
The USIDNET DNA and Cell Repository has been established as part of an NIH-funded program - the US Immunodeficiency Network (www.usidnet.org) - to provide a resource of DNA and functional lymphoid cells obtained from patients with various primary immunodeficiency diseases. 
CDC Cell and DNA Repository
The Genetic Testing Reference Material Coordination Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Coriell Institute for Medical Research announce the availability of samples derived from transformed cell lines for use in molecular genetic testing.
NEI-AREDS Genetic Repository
The Age-Related Eye Disease Study was designed to learn about macular degeneration and cataract, two leading causes of vision loss in older adults. The study looked at how these two diseases progress and what their causes may be. 
J. Craig Venter Institute Human Reference Genome (HuRef)
The Human Reference Genetic Material Repository makes available DNA from a single individual, J. Craig Venter, whose genome has been sequenced and assembled.
