Conference Documentation: BioBanking

SMi is proud to present the 6th annual Biobanking Conference, 20th – 21st June 2016, London. Through a series of interactive presentations, panel discussions and roundtables, this meeting will feature innovative discussions on relevant and critical issues on how to improve biobanking practices.

The proposed changes to the EU Data Protection Regulation will constitute a new legal framework for biobanking operations if and once passed by the European Commission. As such, this year's Biobanking Conference will focus on the potential changes and impacts of maintaining a sustainable biobanking infrastructure, harmonization, and interaction between biobanks across UK, Europe and the world.

Join us today to ensure you're at the forefront of the industry!
