Open Access Biobanks @ UCL
Date: 18th April
Location: Kennedy LT, UCL Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1EH
Come to the Open Access Biobanks@UCL event on 18 April and find out more about the biobank resources available at UCL. The day, which is hosted by the UCL Reproduction and Development Domain, marks the launch of the new UCL BioResource.
There are a range of biobanks at UCL providing services and access to a range of sample types, this if your chance to find out more about biobanking, what is available and some of the work being done using human tissue.
The UCL BioResource is one of 7 centres which will form part of the
NIHR National BioResource. The UCL BioRescource will have access to
samples and data from 10,000 of the unique population of volunteers and
patients, from UCL and partner hospitals, who have consented to be
recalled for further studies according to genotype and phenotype. This
will provide a powerful resource for studying disease mechanisms, and
characterising the benefits and limitations of emerging therapies.
