Wisconsin Brain Donor Program (WBDP)
The Wisconsin Brain Donor Program (WBDP) stores brain and other tissues/samples (e.g. blood and CSF) from deceased individuals who have participated in longitudinal research studies, as well as other select participants. These individuals have donated their tissues in order to aid scientific research. Through the collection of central and peripheral nervous tissues as well as (in select cases) skeletal muscle tissue, the WBDP strives to advance the knowledge of diseases of memory disorders, such as Alzheimer's Disease. Brain donations are needed from healthy individuals, as well as those affected by diseases of the nervous system.

|Official Title:||University of Wisconsin-Madison: Wisconsin Brain Donor Program (WBDP)|
Brain tissue, blood, cerebrospinal fluid, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and skeletal muscles, central/peripheral nervous tissue, as well as skeletal muscle tissue.
|Study Start Date:||March 2007|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2018|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The WBDP strives to provide well-characterized tissues/samples to researchers. The WBDP is aligned with the longitudinal research study of the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) in Madison, Wisconsin as well as other studies associated with the ADRC.
