Visitor's Guide: Boston

7th Annual Biorepositories and Sample Management Conference

Description

Attend the 7th Annual Biorepositories and Sample Management Conference to examine the industry's most pressing topics, benchmark best practices with your peers and ultimately learn how to maximize the value of your biospecimens through quality-driven biobanking.
This year, the theme is quality, and how the quality of your samples can determine whether you will be forced to repeat clinical trials or reproduce their results as well as the potential fallout from adverse situations. Given the diversity of biobanks in the US, from academic institutions to research institutes and hospitals, any efforts at creating regulations or governing rules for them will require more than a "one-size-fits-all" model.
Explore key topics:
Next-Gen Sequencing: Enrich quality control and sample integrity with case study insights into sample storage, building a comprehensive multidisciplinary biorepository and core molecular laboratory quality program, performance metrics and more.
Informed Consent:Drive positive patient outcomes through an understanding of new regulatory, global and ethical updates through a new hands-on workshop.
Increase Your Global Footprint: Overcome country-specific collection, reporting, and return requirements. Plus, get a look into setting up a biorepository in Latin America presented by Baylor College of Medicine.
Collaboration for Sample Quality: Case study insights from Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Takeda to optimize your in-house and outsourced operations to maximize resources and minimize costs.
Management of Biosample Data: Deep dives into new technology and innovative sample management projects presented by GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, and Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Don't miss out on the ultimate peer-exchange event where you can turn knowledge into actionable insights! Join 150+ sample management leaders to share real-time breakthroughs and opportunities in biospecimen management — we're all in this together!
