ANZCHOG-BN biobanking workshop at Pullman Cairns International on 16th October 2019, in conjunction with the 2019 ABNA meeting

The ANZCHOG-BN held its second biobanking workshop in conjunction with the 2019 ABNA meeting in Cairns on 16th October 2019, supported by funding from Tour de Cure. The workshop covered the topics of retrospective vs prospective biobanking, biobank databases, modifying sample formats stored to support research of the future, and strategies to improve support for both national and international research. All attendees benefit a great deal from the discussions and from the face to face interactions with other network members.
