Related Content

The Governing Board is composed of representatives of ordinary members and of expert members.

The ordinary members of SBP are the University Hospitals of Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne and Zürich, considered as non-profit institutions and organisations active in the biobanking field. The ordinary members constitute the SBP General Assembly. Each ordinary member appoints an individual (a member of the general management) to act as its representative on the General Assembly and on the Governing Board.

SBP also has expert members, a maximum of three, identified as individuals recognized in specific biobanking domains. These expert members are recommended by the Governing Board and elected by the General Assembly.

The President, the Vice-president and the Governing Board are elected for a three year period.
