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 .
Biobanking as a resource for biomedical research:
Karolinska Institutet and BBMRI.se gives a one-week course April 18-22, 2016.
This course aims to provide practical knowledge to start biobanking with state of the art quality comprising ethics, legal aspects, sampling handling and logistics. Furthermore the course aims to enable the course participants to get insight in and knowledge about how to collect human tissue samples and associated data, about how to apply technology advancements such as next generation sequencing, proteomics and metabolomics to harness biological information from biobanked material such as tissues and liquid biopsies and finally to get insight into successful research projects where biobanking in combination with large scale analysis is having direct impact on health care.
