Biobank samples help researchers find new and better ways to diagnose and treat diseases that affect both animals and humans.

You can help as well, by donating blood and other biological samples from animals in your care to the Cornell Veterinary Biobank.

Owners usually find that donating samples to us comforts them when coping with their animal’s illness or death by making a meaningful contribution to advances in medicine that will help future generations of animals and humans.
