Invitation to attend a forum - MHTP Biobank - Thurs 25 June 10am

Attn: Researchers/Clinicians at MHTP

We would like to invite you to a forum to discuss the possible formation of an MHTP Biobank.  There is widespread interest in having a biorepository for tissue samples to support research across the precinct (and beyond).   There are many issues to discuss: what samples, what type of cryopreservation, how will clinical and other linked information be stored, who will have access, how will it be funded, where will it be located and other ethical and governance matters.  Monash Health currently has a tissue bank linked to the Victorian Cancer Biobank and we hope to have representatives from the MH facility to discuss how these entities might interact.  We plan to send out a brief questionnaire prior to the meeting to understand the biobanking needs of investigators as an initial step.

This forum is an initial meeting to gauge interest and raise questions, so we hope you will be able to attend to provide your valuable input.

Date: Thursday 25th June 2015 Time: 10am - 11.30amVenue: Surgery Seminar Room, Level 5 Block E, MMC Clayton
RSVP: by return email to jinleng.graham@monash.edu
