    The upcoming proposed Data Protection Regulation in the EU is the culmination of biobanking operations and will constitute a new legal framework if and once passed by the European Commission.

Expert speaker panel line-up includes MHRA, the European Commission, UK Biobank, Roslin Cell Sciences, European Culture Collection ECACC, and other leading European Biobanks.
