Over 150 leading biobanking, biomarker and sample management experts came together to discuss the most recent developments within research and industry. The Biobanking congress brought together key speakers from Europe’s biobanks to explore key insights into biosample management, standards, quality management as well as future advances in areas such as regulations and collaboration. The presentations by leading pharmaceutical companies featured biobanking and case studies in biomarker-driven clinical trials and the role of biobanking in the future of personalised medicine was discussed.
University Hospital in Pilsen was presented by the talk on „Personalised Medicine in Oncology“by Judita Kinkorová, and a panel discussion: „How Biobanks Facilitate Personalised Medicine“.
The congress offered the participants the platform for future collaborations.
