Biobank Norway 3, involving researchers form the Centre for Fertility and Health, obtains funding from the Research Council of Norway


Biobank Norway is a large-scale national research infrastructure for clinical and population-based biobanks, which is funded through the Research Council of Norway's program for research infrastructures (Biobank Norway 1, 2011-2016; Biobank Norway 2, 2016-2019).

The Biobank Norway 3 project is hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and involves a total of 11 partners, including the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH). After an evaluation round by the Research Council in September 2019, the proposal was placed on a reserve list. The project has now obtained funding.

Researchers from the Centre for Fertility and Health (Håkon Gjessing, Astanand Jugessur and Rolv Terje Lie) are partners in a work package on computational biobanking. The objectives of this work package are to:

  • Enhance project-oriented support for bioinformatics and statistical analyses of data generated from Norwegian biobanks
  • Develop a Norwegian European Genome Archive (EGA)-like solution
  • Develop tools for Norwegian biobank data analysis

Other researchers from other NIPH (Gun Peggy Knudsen and Isabelle Budin-Ljøsne) lead some of the other work packages in the project.
