Education and lectures on biobanking
An important part of KI Biobanks mission is to educate and inform about biobanks and biobank samples. Both due to current national rules and guidelines , as well as the opportunity for collaborations, and more local information specific to KI and KI Biobank .
Karolinska Institutet and BBMRI.se gives a one-week course April 18-22, 2016. This course will give you new insights on the value of biobanks and how to use these rich sources of samples and related data. It will include lectures on health registers, large-scale omics analyses and some of the emerging and powerful IT tools to link such data sources.
The course is open to apply for PhD students and postdocs, but also for others who work with biobanking.
The course is taught in English.
For questions please contact Gunnel Tybring.
We give lectures on biobanking in various graduate schools at KI and it is also possible to contact KI Biobank for special lectures, if desired.
We regularly arrange information days where both internal and external researchers are invited.
