New animation Heart Tissue Bank

An animation video (in Dutch with Dutch subtitles) has just been released to explain the concept of the Heart Tissue Bank. Have a look and feel free to send it around!

The Heart Tissue Bank is a non-profit biobank that collects and stores biomaterial and clinical data of individuals with and without previously known cardiac diseases. All individuals aged ≥ 18 years that live in the Netherlands are eligible for inclusion as a potential future donor.  Researchers all over the world can use the stored heart tissue and related clinical data for their research.
