City-Labs Talk Series “Biobanking: indispensable tool or ethical concern?”

Date: Wednesday, 19 September 2018 17:30 - 19:00

Venue: Io Sono Wine Bar (Rue du Trône 62, 1050 Bruxelles)

Join us for the second meeting of the City-Labs Talk Series 
Biobanking: indispensable tool or ethical concern?

Wednesday, 19th September 2018 from 17.30 to 19.00
at Io Sono Wine Bar (Rue du Trône 62, 1050 Bruxelles)

The purpose of this informal debate is to offer a real and dynamic discussion among key stakeholders and policymakers on to what extent clinical research and public health could benefit from biobanking and on the key ethical and technical challenges ahead.

Biobanks collect and store biological materials for use in research: human biological samples (e.g. blood, tissue or DNA) and related data represent key resources in unveiling genetic and environmental factors, underlying diseases and influencing their outcome. Ultimately, those data are considered as the essential raw materials for the advancement of biotechnology, life science, drug development and basically human health. However, Biobanks bring about important questions on privacy, research and medical ethics.
