The third UMCG summer short course about exploring the fundamentals of biobanking and cohort research starts in June. Are you a PhD student or graduates in biomedical, social, or behavioral sciences, or do you have equivalent professional experience? And are you interested in Biobanking? Sign up for this course before May 13th!

Biobank research involves the use of systematic collections of human biomaterials and related data, in population-based or clinical investigations, to answer a broad array of research questions. Biobanks and large population cohorts are increasingly recognized as essential tools for exploring the origin of diseases, understanding the relationships between genetic and lifestyle determinants and diseases, and developing new diagnostic and drug therapies.

The course will be held from June 20th till June 24th and after a succesfull completion you will be awarded with a certificate.
