Scientist.com and UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre Host Webinar Series on Overcoming Challenges Facing UK Biobanks
Scientist.com, the pharma industry’s leading marketplace for outsourced research, announced today that it has joined with the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre (TDCC) to host a panel of experts to discuss current challenges in UK biobanking. The second webinar in the two-part series is scheduled for May 20, 2020, at 2:00 pm BST and will focus on how to enable biobanks to increase sample access in a transparent and compliant manner.
“We are excited to have assembled such distinguished panels on one of the most important topics within the UK biobanking community today—how biobanks can make their samples available to a wider audience for the use of drug discovery,” said Matt McLoughlin, VP of Compliance & Categories at Scientist.com. “It is critical that biobanks in the UK find simpler and more effective ways to connect with the research community to make human biospecimens available for pre-clinical and clinical research.”
The panel consist of experts in biobanking, including Phil Quinlan, PhD, Director at UKCRC TDCC; Alison Parry-Jones, PhD, Operations Director at Wales Cancer Bank; and Matt McLoughlin, VP of Compliance & Categories at Scientist.com.
