Advances in molecular high-throughput assays for gene expression (DNA/RNA) signatures have generated the parallel need for well annotated properly preserved biospecimens. Samples from both diseased and unaffected normal tissues are often required. Like traditional banks, biobanks are meant to be used and are most useful when the needs of end-users (researchers) are considered. Thus, a well managed biobank is a critical prerequisite for high-quality biological research. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural The Science of Biobanking is uniquely designed to explore the critical interactions between bioDEPOSITORS, bioBANKERS, and bioRECIPIENTS who are all invested in the future of biomolecular research.
