About BBJ


Patient and Public Involvement/Engagement (PPI/E) in medical research has increasingly been prevalent in Europe and the United States, which incorporates the perspectives of patients and the public at various stages of research from planning to evaluation after the completion of research.
BioBank Japan has been working on PPI by employing patients and citizens as committee members to serve on the Working Group for Future Planning of BBJ and other organizations. In these committees, BBJ have received opinions from not only researchers but also patients and citizens from various perspectives, and have discussed the research and future plans and policies of BioBank Japan.
In addition, we have also held BioBank tours and opinion-exchange meetings for patients and citizens.
