Optimal management of biospecimens and bioresources through biobanking has now become a new discipline and a strategic tool for biomedical and conservation research.
The University of Luxembourg and IBBL (Integrated BioBank of Luxembourg) cordially invite you to their unique integrated biobanking academic course to be held in Luxembourg in June 2013.
The course will focus on the most effective ways of providing quality products/biospecimens and conserved bioresources to different communities of practice, the technical, scientific and legal/ethical aspects of collecting, processing, storing and sharing samples and evaluating sample attributes. With 90 hours of teaching spread across 3 consecutive weeks, the course is taught entirely in English language and is addressed to students from both clinical and environmental/biodiversity backgrounds associated with scientific and bioresources collections, collectors, managers, technicians, auditors and end users. Teaching will be shared and delivered by an experienced team of enthusiastic instructors representing different clinical, environmental and biodiversity conservation disciplines.
It is expected that commonalities will be highlighted and new ideas will be generated through interdisciplinarity and cross-cutting teaching materials in this novel course.
