Aeras, a nonprofit organization dedicated to tuberculosis research and vaccination development, launched a website called AerasSHARE Biorepository to enable researchers from other organizations to access specimens and data sets and enhance collaboration among vaccine researchers, according to a press release.

The website, which is based off the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s BioLINCC program, is governed by a charter that provides general principles for the management and good governance of the repository to ensure the interests of donors and all other stakeholders are safeguarded. It is solely based on advancing TB research, according to Jacqueline E. Shea, PhD, CEO of Aeras.
