The EBW 2021 will be held virtually from November 8-10. This year’s congress theme is “Biobanking for our Future – Opportunities Unlocked”.
EPTRI will be represented by Prof. Constantinos Deltas, University of Cyprus, whose poster “A Biobank is growing in Cyprus” has been selected for an oral presentation in the afternoon poster session.
The Center of Excellence in Biobanking and Biomedical Research aims to build the first Biobank in Cyprus, that will serve the practise of high-quality medical research. The first and major project is the preparation of the Cypriot Human Reference Genome. The biobank has been involved in Cypriot National Node of EPTRI, to which the University of Cyprus is one of the members, as it is important to guarantee access to paediatric samples through a well organised biobank with ethical and quality standards.
