Leaders in Biobanking Congress 2012 a Great Success; 
Draws Record Attendance 

Leaders in Biobanking Congress 2012 would like to thank all speakers, attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors who were able to join us in Chapel Hill, NC. Plus, a special thanks to Duke and LabCorp for co-hosting the event and for the on-site laboratory tour and reception. The event drew its largest number of attendees with over 150 biobanking leaders from Pharma, Biotech, and academic institutions.

If you are interested in speaking, please contact Mary Ann Brown, Executive Director, Conferences at mabrown@healthtech.com.

What is a Biosample? 

 


A definition of a biosample can be as varied as its use. Speakers and participants from the recent Leaders in Biobanking Congress (October 1-2, Chapel Hill, NC) share their working definition of a biosample and how they use this precious resource for scientific research.



Today, biospecimen collections are used by multiple groups for various aims, from basic research through clinical trials. A well-managed biobank is a critical prerequisite for high-quality biological research. The proper collection, processing, storage, and tracking of biospecimens are vital components allowing researchers to better link molecular and clinical information. Thus, by necessity, biobanking is both a science and a business. With an eye to the value of precious clinical biosamples, Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s fourth annual Leaders in Biobanking Congress addresses both the business and science of biobanking, bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers, and practitioners to investigate the best tactics for effective use of biospecimens within today’s cutting edge research.
