Programme available for Europe Biobank Week Roadshow 2022 (EBW22)

The European, Middle Eastern & African Society for Biopreservation and Biobanking (ESBB) and BBMRI-ERIC are organising the Europe Biobank Week Roadshow 2022 (EBW22) in partnership with the BBMRI ERIC Stakeholder Forum Patient Pillar,, the Research Translational (IRCCS) Paediatric Bambino Gesù Hospital, and the paediatric network IDEA.

The second stop of the EBW22 will be held as an in-person event in Rome, Italy on October 13th-14th at the Auditorium San Paolo, Bambino Gesù Paediatric Hospital. Because of the EBW22 Roadshow format and the purpose to co-design a shared statement in paediatric biobanking, the meeting will be face-to-face and interactive.

The meeting will be kicked off with an overall view of European commitment to paediatric research and healthcare followed by an in-depth exchange on good practices and priorities of various actors to raise awareness and citizen science, facilitate assent and consenting processes, and improve engagement. The first day will conclude with a keynote on innovative genomic approaches to undiagnosed patients and precision medicine in children by Marco Tartaglia and Franco Locatelli. 

The second day will be framed into two sessions of “Interactive training for a community of practices” where small groups will work together in parallel 

  • to recognize and map good practice, training, and learning from each other to build a paediatric (research) biobanking community based on shared knowledge and good practices
  • to codesign a shared recommendation on paediatric biobanking

The detailed program is now available here.

Registration is mandatory and open here; seats are limited to 100 attendees.
