Develop Your Biobank by Optimising Sample Quality & Making Robust Use of Your Samples

By 2020, almost 70% of all drugs will be biological compounds.

With the key focus now on using your biobank as effectively as possible, commercial biobanks becoming a common theme and data analytics being carried out on samples, the face of biobanking is evolving.

Instead of storing multiple samples and trying to find a use for them, working backwards has been key to the developments in this field. Working out what samples are needed in research and then seeking these specifically is the way to be sustainable.

With this in mind, Pharma IQ presents the 13th Annual Global Biobanking Summit.

The draft agenda is under construction and will be available for download in the next few weeks so please keep checking back! Alternatively, if you are interested in a pass to the event, please enquire here.

  • Explore the latest initiatives to harmonise sample quality and data standards with Anne Carter, UCL, and Georges Dagher, INSERM
