9th May 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Patient data & tissue samples – benefits, barriers & concerns

This public workshop will explore the gaps and issues surrounding the use of human tissue samples for research. Co-hosted by the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre, ICPV and Use MY Data and CM-Path this event is aimed at patients, the public, researchers, biobankers and charities, but is open to all who are interested.

This workshop will explore:

  • Tissue samples and the data pathway
  • Current governance and what it could/should be
  • Consent including dynamic consent versus broad consent
  • How the use of data might influence the decision to donate

Delegates will hear from pathologists, patients, researchers and governing bodies. Via a mixture of talks, questions & answers and debate, we will examine the benefits of and barriers to donating tissue.
