Biobanking 2014 will discuss the skills and efforts needed to set up and maintain the banking of Biospecimens used for basic research through clinical trials. How to set up efficient and effective collection, processing, storage, and tracking of biospecimens will be discussed. Bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers, and practitioners this event will investigate the best methods for effective storage of biospecimens in the 21st Century.
This annual networking forum gathers together experts in DVI to discuss current legislation and techniques involved in DVI

It has become clear that there are large individual differences in the responsiveness to well-defined energy balance manipulations to control obesity. Overfeeding as well as negative energy balance protocols indicate that the response to standardized experimental treatments is strongly influenced by genetic background. However, testing gene-environment interaction is a relatively new field. This event will discuss identifying the genetic and environmental risk factors (lifestyle and diet) for obesity and the evidence for gene-environment interaction will be examined. This event will be an idea setting to find out what is new in the field, to network and to meet the experts.
This event will discuss current research and clinical trials for the prevention of cancer, focussing on screening, early detection and chemoprevention. The meetings will be run in an informal setting with plenty of opportunity for networking and debate.
