organised by BBMRI-ERIC/Biobank Norway
26. & 28. January 2021, 14-16:00
Biological samples collected from patients can potentially be used to advance medical research. European countries are progressively establishing procedures to systemically ask patients for their general consent to store routine clinical draws and biological leftovers in hospital-based biobanks for medical research. When such general consent is given, future research uses are not known, are not limited to a thematic area, and are not limited in time. At the workshop, experts from several European countries will present their experiences in implementing and managing general hospital-based biobanks. Organizational, ethical, and regulatory challenges and opportunities will be explored and discussed. The workshop format will enable interaction between participants and speakers.
The workshop is organized as two separate sessions of 2 hours each:
Session 1: 26 January 2021, from 14.00 to 16.00 CET
Session 2: 28 January 2021, from 14.00 to 16.00 CET
