Top 5 Reasons to Attend the ISBER 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibits:

Biobanks have been portrayed as having the promise to unlock biological processes and promote a better tomorrow. Following the advent of the human genome project, biobanks have become the bedrock to accelerating scientific discoveries. Stemming from the success stories is a blueprint that places the biobank community at the forefront of research infrastructure for many generations to come.

In April 2020, global leaders and disruptors from the broad spectrum of scientific community will converge in the largest international biobank conference, ISBER 2020, to address the impact of biobanks on science and how the related discoveries are establishing a roadmap to extend our knowledge network. From engaging with vulnerable populations to advances in artificial intelligence, experts at ISBER 2020 will highlight critical advances in biobanking and, for the first time, host a debate to discuss the utilization of samples and data in the modern era.

Our ability to transform health and research depends on the voices of all individuals willing to contribute and challenge the roadmap that biobanks are paving. Will you be part of the solution?

The ISBER Annual Meeting is the premier location to connect with biobanking experts from across the globe. The meeting includes a number of networking events such as a welcome reception and formal networking dinner, as well as ample opportunity to connect with delegates during breaks and within the exhibit hall.

This years Biobanking 101 workshop will address:
