Co-organised by BBMRI-ERIC and ESBB, the Europe Biobank Week 2018 will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, from the 4th until the 7th September 2018.
One of the most significant biobanking conferences worldwide, this event provides an exciting and unique opportunity for the biobanking community to discuss the future challenges for biobanking, network and explore new prospects for cooperation and collaboration.
EPTRI has presented an abstract entitled EPTRI–European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure. Strengthening the development and use of paediatric biomarkers to offer better medicines for children that has been selected as an oral presentation.
Within EPTRI a Platform Supporting Biomarkers use in Paediatric Medicines Development will be set-up in collaboration with existing RIs, in particular BBMRI-ERIC who is leading the thematic Work Package aimed to design this platform.
The platform will be aimed to identify the critical issues that hamper the advancement of paediatric biomarkers and define tools and facilities to be provided by EPTRI to create optimal conditions for the development and use of paediatric biomarkers. The platform will enhance the use of -omics science, the biobanking activity and the process of biomarkers identification, characterization and validation in paediatrics. A feasibility study on biomarker development will be proposed to test the platform.
The preliminary scientific programme of the event is available here.
