Researchers can use Podium to request  samples, data or images from repositories, biobanks and registries they located using Catalogue.

Podium facilitates linking data by allowing researchers to request linked data, samples and images on subject-level across biobanks and registries.

Biobanks, organizations and National Health Registries can manage their own ‘in house’ requests as well as linked requests.  

The current version of Podium includes: PALGA, PHARMO, BIOS, GoNL, CAPACITY, the NELSON study, ILD Biobank and Parelsnoer. More registries, biobanks, image archives, cohorts and data are being added continuously. 

Podium is maintained and serviced by the Health-RI Service desk. Please contact the Health-RI Servicedesk with questions regarding Podium, to add your organization, biobank or registry to Podium or to create an account. You can also request a demo of Podium at your organization.
