Covering all technical, scientific and legal /ethical aspects of human
and environmental biobanking
Biospecimens have become a strategic tool for healthcare and medical research, research and conservation in biodiversity, animal, plant and microbial biology as well as in translational research and systems biology through all types of -omics applications.
Optimal management of biospecimens and bioresources through biobanking for future research and conservation has now become a new discipline.
 Why should you attend ? 1. Understand in depth and produce an oral synthesis of the common principles of practical biobanking.
 2. Put different types of biobanks in context and draw conclusions regarding the theoretical basis of their operations.
 3. Apply the scientific basis of biobanking/biospecimen research in Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) development and their implementation in the exploitation of samples for research and conservation.
 4. Question the logistical, practical and technical steps of biobanking, and evaluate their coherence and adequation.
 5. Compare different reports and processes on biobank risk management and mitigation.
 6. Develop Best Practices/Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
