Maximizing Biorepositories for Research & Drug Discovery
18 Dec 2020, December 21, 2020 Eastern Time (ET)
Genuity Science joined a distinguished panel of experts from academia, research and industry to discuss opportunities and challenges facing biorepositories and biobanks around the world seeking to maximize their resources for research and drug discovery. Whether the repository contains a small collections of samples, or is a large-scale national or international repository, biobanking will continue to play a key role in accelerating the discovery and development of new drugs, as these efforts require access to a larger array of biological samples. At the same time, biobanks face a variety of challenges in meeting the different interests and unique needs of their collaborators and partners in order to support a growing number of research studies. Maximizing utility and sustainability are critical for the long-term success of biorepositories and biobanks.
This webinar explores the enormous innovative potential for biobanks and biorepositories to support translational research using a variety of bio-sample types (tissue samples, tumor cells, DNA, RNA, blood samples) collected from population-based and/or disease-specific groups of individuals.
