NINDS Repository

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke


The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke is committed to gene discovery, as a strategy for identifying the genetic causes and correlates of nervous system disorders. The NINDS Human Genetics DNA and Cell Line Repository banks samples from subjects with cerebrovascular disease, dystonia, epilepsy, frontotemporal degeneration, Huntington's disease, motor neuron disease, Parkinsonism and Tourette Syndrome, as well as population controls. 


  • Did you receive samples from Coriell Biorepositories in 2016?

    Publications utilizing samples from the Coriell Biorepositories are a valuable resource for researchers worldwide and a key metric for the private and government sponsors of the Institute’s collections. Please respond to the one-page Coriell Biorepositories Publication Survey 2016.
