In 2009–2010, the Foundation awards a 10-year grant of DKK 118 million (€15.9 million) to establish the Danish National Biobank [link] at Statens Serum Institut. The Biobank will become one of the world’s largest and to give scientists an overview of and access to about 15 million biological samples in Denmark’s health care system for the first time. The Biobank is opening new ways of understanding why disease occurs and how to prevent and treat it. The Biobank opens on 21 March 2012 and is part of the Foundation’s cluster of research centres.
