Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biobanks are infrastructures aiming at collecting, processing, storing and distributing biological samples (usually human) and derivative materials for use in research, along with associated data and within defined regulatory frameworks.

Biobanking has become an important resource in medical research, supporting the scaling-up of many types of contemporary research such as genomics and personalized medicine. In recent years, many disease-oriented biobanks have emerged, while tumor biobanks have attracted great interest and funding.

This Special Issue will focus on recent advances in the field of biobanking and biobanking research and its application of novel techniques in the field of personalized medicine. Original articles and reviews highlighting biobanks in disease treatment and personalized medicine are welcome.

Dr. Zisis Kozlakidis
Guest Editor

Biobanks are infrastructures essential for research involving multi-disciplinary teams and an increasing number of stakeholders. In the field of personalized medicine, biobanks play a key role through the provision of well-characterized and annotated samples protecting at the same time the right of donors. The Andalusian Public Health System Biobank (SSPA Biobank) has implemented a global information management system made up of different modules that allow for the recording, traceability and monitoring of all the information associated with the biobank operations. The data model, designed in a standardized and normalized way according to international initiatives on data harmonization, integrates the information necessary to guarantee the quality of results from research, benefiting researchers, clinicians and donors.
