GB Community

GB Community is our foundational research offering in biobanking with the Biobank of the America as our flagship. This infrastructure can then be expanded to other communities with the focus on diversity as a central tenet.


Galatea Bio is committed to work with the GB community to build and expand the infrastructure needed for a federated network of biobanks with diverse populations.  We work and share our knowledgewith each partner in our biobank network to ensure our samples and data are of highest quality.
