Biobanking: how can we make it meet the needs of researchers? [Video]

In the final TRI Director’s Choice Seminar for 2021, our guest speakers and panellists put the spotlight on the field of biobanking in medical research. They share their experiences in obtaining and collecting biological and clinical data from human subjects to establish and maintain successful biobanks, along with the enablers and barriers they have encountered.
