Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute members are eligible for a discount rate at Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s fifth annual Leaders in Biobanking Congress from Nov. 4 to 5 at the Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre Hotel in Indianapolis.
Indiana CTSI members including all faculty at Indiana University, Purdue University and the University at Notre Dame. Registrations will receive a $100 discount with the keycode “BNK CTSI."
This year’s event, “ Maximizing Your Investment in Biospecimens,” will address both the business and science of biobanking, bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers and practitioners to investigate the best strategies for effective use of biospecimens within today’s cutting-edge research.
Speakers will include Anantha Shekhar, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Indiana CTSI and associate dean for translational research and Raymond E. Houk Professor of Psychiatry at the IU School of Medicine, who will present "Academia and Pharma: New Approaches for Bi-Directional Collaborations." Dr. Shekhar's address is scheduled at 10:45 a.m. on Nov. 4.
Today, biospecimen collections are used by multiple research groups for varying research aims, from basic research through clinical trials. A well-managed biobank is a critical prerequisite for high-quality biological research. The proper collection, processing, storage and tracking of biospecimens are critical components allowing researchers to better link molecular and clinical information. Thus, by necessity, biobanking is both a science and a business.

Discount rates are available to new registrations only. Indiana CTSI registrants cannot combine their discount with other special offers, except poster discounts. Not applicable to short course only registrations.
