The resources within biobanks, rapid autopsy programs, registry trials and clinical cohorts can be invaluable for researchers to advance their work. A wide range of these resources are available right now to support translational research across the VCCC Alliance.
This event will bring you face-to-face with the researchers and clinicians who have developed these resources for an evening of information and networking. You'll have the opportunity to learn what's available and how to access it, ask the big questions, and interact with the speakers to discuss future collaboration.
We'll dive into real examples of how biospecimens and data collected as part of clinical trials have been used to successfully conduct translational research.
You will learn:
- What resources are available in biobanks, rapid autopsy programs and registry trials across the VCCC Alliance to advance your research
- How clinical data and biospecimens can be utilised in your research
- Where the resources are located and how to access them
- Where to go to get more information, or who to contact for collaboration.
You don't need to have a specific research need in mind - join us to see what's available to support you with future studies!
