D3D: Data, Drugs, Diagnostics
Next Generation Biobanking in a Targeted Outsourcing Model

The path to realizing the full potential of samples stored in biobanks - collected in the course of clinical trials, for example - has fast become a data problem requiring increasingly sophisticated approaches for management.  Trials are global, increasingly externalized with multiple stakeholders, generate large amounts of data, and operate in an ever-changing regulatory landscape.  Maintaining state-of-the-art, compliant approaches for data today and in the future requires expert partners for execution.  In this Webinar, attendees will learn emerging best practices for Next Generation Biobanking as it is applied in clinical trial sample and consent tracking, specifically in a targeted outsourcing model.
