About the trade show
SMi presents its 2nd annual Biobanking event.
Access to samples is paramount to scientific research. DNA, RNA, proteins, cells and tissues of all types are being stored centrally for later use in experiments conducted by academia and industry alike. This has given rise to the concept of Biobanking, which in 2009 was described by Time Magazine as one of the ’10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now’.
Although not an entirely new conception, there is significant change driving current development. With greater impetus being put on data sharing, interoperability and harmonisation of biobanks, single centre research facilities are evolving into research infrastructures. Considering that sharing, storing and using biosamples can vary wildly in cost, social and scientific impact there are efforts now being made to associate value to existing biological resources.SMi’s Biobanking event will aim to address important issues experienced by those who donate, manage and expend biobank samples. Key opinion leaders will provide up to date information on the important topics of today, and there will be opportunities for discussion and networking across a range of professions.
