Swiss Biobanking Platform (SBP) is the national initiative of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) established as the reference platform for the coordination and harmonization of Swiss biobanks in all fields of research. It responds to the needs of the biobanking and research communities to increase the visibility, accessibility and interoperability of biobanks as well as foster value and quality of biological resources.
SBP and SNSF invite the research community to a virtual Workshop on Connecting researchers and biobanks: the BioLink experience. What’s “NExT” ? This event will take place on April 20th 2021 from 1:00 to 5:30pm.
It aims at sharing the experience of the SNSF BioLink projects for the interoperability of biobanks as well as showcasing the SBP NExT as a new tool to help the biobanks and the research community to share biological material. At the Workshop, you will actively participate in discussing the future needs in this field the BioLink instrument will have to cover and learn how to get connected and increase the value of your biological samples through data interoperability and sharing.
Swiss Biobanking Platform (SBP) is an initiative of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) established as the national coordination and reference platform for biobanking activities in all fields of research. It responds to the needs of the research community in terms of coordination and harmonization of biobanking activities by increasing visibility and achieving high quality, transparency, accessibility and interoperability of biobanks. To achieve this, SBP provides a variety of services to the research community and access to BBMRI-ERIC as the Swiss node.
SBP and SNSF invite the research community to a Workshop on «Quality in Biobanking», March 11 2019 in Bern. The Workshop will specially be dedicated to identifying the necessary conditions to make data archiving and high sample quality possible and on how to achieve them. At the workshop, you will actively participate in shaping the future portfolio of SBP within the Swiss research landscape.
SBP presented its first conference on February 1st 2018 at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne on the EPFL campus.
This event featured international and national experts sharing their vision of the “Biobanking of the future”.
Three panels of experts discussed new directions in state-of-the-art biobanking research. To meet current requirements, the scientific community biobanks need to tackle challenges including harmonized procedures, promotion of high quality standards or sustainability, all of them in the framework of their ethical, legal and social dimensions. The conference thus provided a forum for discussion around topics on next biobanking generation including focus on optimal usage of biological resources as well as present successful human and non-human biobanking research examples.
“Nos mouvements sont enregistrés et nos résultats médicaux sont de plus en plus numérisés. L’analyse informatique de ces données permet de faire progresser notre compréhension de la médecine comme jamais auparavant. Mais est-ce au détriment de notre vie privée? Une question autant technique qu’éthique ou encore économique.”
