ANZCHOG-BN member A/Prof Dan Catchpoole has been elected President of ISBER

Congratulations!

For the past 20 years the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER) have provided a forum for the discussion, debate and dissemination of knowledge related to biobanking practice and activity around the world. Through ISBER the world now has a set of Best Practice Recommendation for biobanking which has sparked groups like the International Standards Organization (ISO) to commence developing ISO standard documents that govern and direct biobank development. ISBER is a truly international society having members from across the globe and is the world’s leading society for experts in all areas of biobanking.
