Harmonizing Biobank Research Conference in 2009
Date:12/18/2008

ata, information and tools, special populations, mapping ethico-legal frameworks and developing biobank ELSI.

This conference aims to be an integrated hands-on' forum. As harmonisation agendas move forward we are also witnessing substantial impacts of the harmonisation work conducted to date in ongoing genomic projects. Indeed, these harmonisation platforms are core to the success of many projects such as the recently funded European Network of Genetic and Genomic Epidemiology ' (ENGAGE). An important consequence of using these harmonisation outputs in ongoing projects is that a new reservoir of knowledge, experience and expertise is emerging which is crucial to share with the biobanking community at large. This conference will provide an opportunity for such information exchange, plus a forum to challenges and share with each other what is working in practice, in the field. Furthermore, as harmonisation agendas progress they carry with them new opportunities and novel strategies for maximising the use of biobanks. For example, extensions to translational medicine are already on the horizon. Two main themes of the conference will be:

1) Using Biobanks were ongoing studies (e.g. ENGAGE, MOLPAGE, EUROSPAN, CPAC) are used as case projects that describe how they have harmonised using various tools and solutions and where there are bottlenecks, and

2) Maximising the Use of Biobanks which encompasses new harmonization efforts such as meta analyses across biobanks and new directions for moving forward such as in translational medicine by bridging between biobank typologies (e.g. disease and population banks).

The organisers are three interrelated initiatives who are working closely together to develop biobank science and research. These are: Promoting the Harmonisation of Epidemiological Biobanks in Europe' (PHOEBE), Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructures (BBMRI), and Public Population Project in Genomics, (P
