Bookmark and Share


The ISBER 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibits will be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, conveniently located in the heart of the city within close proximity to Darling Harbour and many other major attractions. Plan now to attend this premier event in the field of repository and specimen management. Meet with your colleagues from around the world and view the latest technology and equipment in the specimen collection and repository industry!

Session topics are expected to cover, but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Turning the World Upside Down: Cutting Edge Biorepository Developments
  • Emerging and Cross-Cutting Issues
  • New Biological Perspectives in Biospecimen Science
  • Securing Components of our Natural World
  • Innovative Technologies
  • Late Breaking International Policy Issues and Global Harmonization Efforts Related to Biobanking
  • The Nagoya Protocol and its Implications for Biobanks
  • Biobanking for Translational Science: Mobilizing Research Specimens from Bench to Bedside

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.
Hacking the Programs of Cancer Stem Cells
All tumor cells are the offspring of a single, aberrant cell, but they are not all alike.
Newfound Strength in Regenerative Medicine
A promising new approach uses direct mechanical stimulation to repair severely damaged skeletal muscles.
Mapping out Cell Conversion
Researchers develop algorithm that takes the field of cell reprogramming forward.
Donor's Genotype Controls the Differentiation of IPS Cells
Pluripotent stem cells derived from different cell types are equally susceptible to reprogramming, indicates a recent study by the University of Helsinki and the National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland. However, the genotype of the donor strongly influences the differentiation of the stem cell.
