  1. Samples.
  2. Aging.
  3. Big market.
  4. CROs.
  5. "There are more than 733,000 people in American assisted living facilities.  The number of people with at least one of these three diseases [Alzheimer’s disease, high blood pressure and heart disease] is expected to continue to rise..."
  6. "Biobanking is now a $7.9 billion industry and demand for specimens is skyrocketing."
  7. "Biobanking will be crucial in the future of genomics research."
  8. Could Louisville create a mechanism to get samples?
  9. Could we leverage a local resource?  Louisville is home to the largest concentration of nursing-home and extended-care companies in the nation.
  10. Further capitalize on an existing industry cluster and apply it to biopharma?
  11. "...an effort to sequence the DNA of more than 1,500 Alzheimer's patients and their families..."
