Submit Your Poster

This year we will be hosting an online poster session! The posters will showcase research case studies that biobanks have helped support. The case study should highlight how the biobank supported the research. The poster should not focus on the research study itself, but highlight how the biobank enabled the high impact research. The session will also include time for you to give a 3-minute presentation on your poster.

Posters should cover the following:

  • Impact of the research
  • The role of the Biobank in enabling the research
  • The ‘added value’ the Biobank provided
  • The tissue samples being ‘fit for purpose’
  • Engagement activities (e.g. researchers, patients, the public, etc.)
