From sustainable biomedical research perspective biobanks are becoming more and more vital and the discussion about the management of connected clinical data and data acquisition from Electronic Health Records is intensifying. Because of different standards of data collection, national policies, legal and ethical considerations collaborating with biobanks to conduct research on larger cohorts can be a challenge of it’s own. But what are the existing solutions and near future in biobanking? In order to answer this question, Latvian Biomedical Research and Study centre is organising online seminar from 5th to 7th October.
The three-day weminar will cover many topics for ethical, responsible and sustainable biobanking, challenges and solutions of clinical data management. The seminar includes lectures from scientists of INTEGROMED consortium: Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), University of Dundee (United Kingdom), Lund University (Sweden), Latvian Biomedical Research and Study centre (Latvia) and guests from BBMRI-ERIC network, Estonian biobank in University of Tartu. It is aimed at biomedical students and scientists who are currently working or planning to work with samples and data acquired from biobanks. Participants don’t need any prior experience, Application is mandatory also if participant is considering to attend only specific lectures and/or wants to recieve record afterward.
