IIR’s 7th Annual Biorepositories and Sample Management Conference

08 Sep 2014 - 10 Sep 2014 - Boston, MA, USA



Bookmark and Share


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.
