Biobanks in the UK have a duty and responsibility to ensure that the human biological samples donated by patients with the intent to forward medical research are in fact doing so. This is proving to be a challenge despite the fact that academic and industry research organisations around the country seek to utilise such samples. Why is that?
This webinar brings together key stakeholders within the UK biobank landscape, including the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre (TDCC) and Medicines Discovery Catapult, the patient advocacy group, use MY data and software solution provider, Scientist.com, to discuss these challenges and what they are doing to enable biobanks to increase access in a transparent and compliant manner.
Phil Quinlin, PhD, Director at UKCRC TDCC; Helen Hind, Clinical Samples Manager at Medicines Discovery Catapult; and Richard Stephens, Patient Advocate at use MY data/ Genomics England/ NCRI will be presenting. Matt McLoughlin, VP of Compliance & Categories at Scientist.com will be hosting.
