3rd Annual BioBanking Conference

24 Jun 2013 - 25 Jun 2013 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


SMi’s 3rd Annual Biobanking conference will aim to bring together key solution providers and potential clients affiliated with pharmaceutical companies and Biobanking institutions alike.

As researchers endeavour to develop more personalised medicines, acquiring high quality biospecimens is essential. This is reflected in the estimation that the global Biobanking market is expected to reach $183 billion as biobanks experience rapid growth.

The Biobanking event will reflect the significant change driving current development in biosample management. There will be efforts to associate value to existing biological resources and coverage of important issues experienced by those who donate, manage and expend biobank samples. Focussing on the properties of data sharing and greater involvement between biobanks, allow Biobanking 2013 to give you the most recent up to date information on Biobanking today.

Reasons to Attend:

Unique insights into building and developing a successful biobanking infrastructure

Explore novel technologies for managing biobanks - Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Promote availability and maximise value from biospecimen collections

Investigate ways in which biobanks can contribute to stratified medicines

Interactive platform for networking between academia and industry

Spotlight on ground-breaking topics that expose commercial opportunities for future investments

Highlight global regulatory, legal and ethical compliance considerations

Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
Improving Regenerative Medicine
Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.
Muscles on-a-Chip
This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope
By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness
Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
