3rd International Conference on Tissue preservation and Bio-banking

About Conference

                   A biobank (sometimes called a repository) is a bank that collects, stores, and distributes biological samples, like blood, tissue, cell lines or DNA for use in research. A biobank also collects and stores medical information about sample donors. There are many different types of bio banks. Some focus only on a single disease while others may focus on a group of diseases like cancers or muscular dystrophies. Some bio banks are large, publicly accessible collections of samples. Others may be small, privately funded collections that are only available to specific researchers. Both public and private bio banks are valuable for research. A key advantage of public bio banks is the ability for all scientists to use the samples, which accelerates research and promotes collaboration. Samples from the NIGMS Repository at the Coriell Institute, a large public biobank started in 1972 and funded by the NIH, have been used by thousands of scientists in over 60 countries around the world.                   
                    Public bio banks have become a key money and time saving resource for scientists. It takes a lot of effort, money and time for scientists to find a group of people with a rare disease and collect samples and medical information from each person, each time a new study is planned. Biobanks provide scientists with a central source of high quality biological samples, which is critical to get the most out of the limited funds and resources scientists and rare disease researchers often have for research. Samples in bio banks can be used for a variety of research purposes, including: discovery of new genes, studying how cells from individuals with genetic diseases or chromosomal abnormalities function, developing new ways to detect genetic diseases or chromosomal abnormalities, and the development and testing of potential treatments or cures. When you donate a sample to a biobank, you are providing scientists with a valuable opportunity to learn more about your specific disease experience and how your genetic make-up influences the symptoms and behaviors associated with your disease.               
                To discuss on the topics related to New Scientific Innovations in Development of Tissue science and Biobanking Technologies join us for the “3rd International Conference & Exhibition on Tissue Preservation and Biobanking” during August 23-24, 2017 in San Francisco, California, USA which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions. We hope this gives you best opportunity to reach the largest assemblage of participants from the Tissue preservation and Biobanking community. Conduct presentations, distribute information, meet with current and potential scientists, make a splash with new drug developments, and receive name recognition at this 2-day event. World-renowned speakers, the most recent techniques, developments, and the newest updates in Biobanking are hallmarks of this conference.
