A Bit of Berlin in Bethesda

Biobanking highlights in a nutshell at ISBER Regional Meeting 2016

14 November 2016. Highlights and conclusions from the ISBER Annual Meeting held in Berlin/Germany in April 2016 were summarized in a session chaired by Roman Siddiqui (TMF/Germany) and Cari Lichtman (American Cancer Society/USA) at the ISBER Regional Meeting in Bethesda/USA on November 7, 2016. This was another opportunity to present Germany’s vibrant and well-organized biobanking community.

The ISBER Annual Meeting in Berlin had been opened by a German National Biobanking Day showcasing the main biobanking initiatives and infrastructures in Germany. It was followed by a range of symposia on different biobanking issues. One conclusion of a symposium on Human and Environmental Biobanks to Confront Global Health Challenges, for example, was that existing biobanks should be used rather than to initiate new studies and biobanks.
