Thank you to the 100+ leaders from academia, pharma, biotech and service providers who gathered at 2014 Biorepositories and Sample Management Conference. We appreciate the support of our expert speaking faculty, sponsors and exhibitors that made this event the place where biobanking ideas are discussed, best practices are created and relationships are built or cemented.

One of the main themes for the 2014 event circled around weaving quality into each step of the biobanking process, tapping into technology to streamline processes and learning from ex-US biobanking best practices.

Opt in to be in the know for 2015 program agenda – and if you're interested in getting involved, please email Program Director, Marina Adamsky at madamsky@iirusa.com.
"Excellent coverage of relevant topics, great opportunity to network with colleagues having variety of backgrounds and perspectives".
