ELSI

Neue Technologien verändern das Biobanking in den nächsten Jahren grundlegend.

Das wirft viele ethische, rechtliche und soziale Fragen auf, die im Dialog mit Wissenschaftler*innen, Patient*innen, Datenschützer*innen und der Öffentlichkeit gelöst werden müssen.


Biobanken stehen vor der Herausforderung, die Interessen der medizinischen Forschung und die Forschungsfreiheit der Wissenschaft mit den Rechten und Interessen von Bioprobenspender*innen in Einklang zu bringen. Fragen der Privatsphäre und des Datenschutzes der Spender*innen oder der Umgang mit Zusatzfunden müssen unter ethischen Gesichtspunkten abgewogen und in die Governance von Biobanken integiert werden. Die Abkürzung ELSI steht für „Ethical, Legal, and Social Issues“, also für ethische, rechtliche und soziale Fragestellungen.

Ziele im Bereich ELSI:

  • Rechtliche und ethische Aspekte bzw. Fragestellungen identifizieren, bei denen Handlungsbedarf besteht
  • Bedarf für Anpassungen von Datenschutzkonzepten und weit gefassten Patienteneinwilligungen (Broad Consent) in der German Biobank Alliance (GBA) ermitteln, auch vor dem Hintergrund der EU-Datenschutzgrundverordnung (EU-DSGVO)
  • Bestehende Datenschutz- und Einwilligungskonzepte von Biobanken in Deutschland in Kooperation mit Partnerinitiativen (DZG, NAKO, MII) erweitern und harmonisieren

African Cancer Institute: Biobank Webinar Series 2021 – 2022
Biospecimens for Research: Fit for Purpose
02. Dezember 2021 - 31. März 2022
Online-Event

This series of Biobank Webinars focuses on the collection and handling of biospecimens for research biobanking, including the informed consent process.

These webinars will share invaluable information about the types of biospecimens suitable for biobanking and advanced downstream molecular applications, the challenges of and reasons for cryopreservation, and pre-analytical factors and their influence on the quality of biospecimens. You will also learn about best practices for informed consent for biobanking and the regulatory role of research ethics committees in biobanking.

2. December 2021 - "Cryopreservation for a reason"

Review the advantages, disadvantages and challenges of and current trends in cryopreservation.
Jeffrey Bethony PhD, Professor of Microbiology, Immunology and Tropical Medicine, George Washington University, Washington DC, USA.

24. February 2022 - "Preanalytical variables in biobanking"

Review the pre-analytics (SPREC) and Biospecimen reporting for improved study quality (BRISQ) with emphasis on low and middle-income countries.
Fay Betsou PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, Integrated Biobank of Luxembourg (IBBL), Luxembourg Institute of Health, Dudelange, Luxembourg.

31. March 2022 - "Introduction to biobanking ethics and regulatory issues – Best practices for informed consent for biobanking and the role of research ethics committees in regulating biobanks"

Provide practical information regarding the importance of informed consent, the different types of informed consent, and the role of research ethics committees in the South African and African context.
