ESBB Inaugural Conference

ESBB Inaugural Conference Marseille 2011

November, 2011

The ESBB Inaugural Conference was held in November 2011 at the Pullman Palm Beach Hotel, in Marseille, France.

Conference theme: “Identifying the challenges and the opportunities for biorepositories today and in the next 5 years”.

The conference identified the major challenges and opportunities in biobanking in order to guide future activities of ESBB. This influenced the choice of ESBB working group activities, the topics of future meetings, the content of training courses and strategies taken by ESBB to advance the biobanking field. 

The overall range of issues considered was wide, extending from the sample donor to the repository to the generation of research results. The meeting catered to all parties interested in biobanking from both human and non-human biobanks, with particular emphasis on issues relevant for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The ESBB Inaugural Conference was generously supported by: Cancéropôle Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur (Cancéropôle PACA), the University of Aix-Marseille, local and regional authorities, including the City of Marseilles, the “Conseil Général 13” and the PACA Regional Authority (Conseil Régional PACA). We were particularly grateful to Professor Christian Chabannon and Isabelle Rey-Correard of Cancéropôle PACA, whose strong support made this conference possible.
