Infectious Disease Biobanking: A Global Necessity to Accelerate Vaccine and Therapeutic Development Across the Equator

Evening Symposium Hosted by ClinicalRM at the ASTMH 65th Annual Meeting in Atlanta, November 15, 2016

View the Presentation:


ClinicalRM experts and collaborators, including Deloitte Consulting, Duke University, and the Walter Reed/Kenya Medical Research Institute, discussed the crucial need for a central biobank in Africa, and similar regions along the equator, the logistical requirements necessary to bridge this global health gap, develop global bio-intelligence and data, and the logistical requirements that would enable the research community to:

• aid in the detection of emerging illnesses

• aid in the development of vaccines and therapies

• serve as a potential catalyst to prevention

• fill a vital need to collect information in remote hot-spots of human/animal infectious diseases
