Data and Biobanking

Time: 3 October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: V Spa Conference Centre, room Finland (https://bit.ly/2m8jVli)

For the next Tartu Health Cluster meeting we will be tackling a controversial topic: data in healthcare!

While data is becoming an integral part of health services and loads of data is created and saved daily, the rights and benefits of using the data are not evident, although multiple uses can be considered in research and business development.

Among others, we will hear of the experience of: Damien Bertrand (DNAlytics.com), Pia Nyberg (Oulu University Biobank), Huong Nguyen (Vice President of Dinh Tien Hoang Institute of Medicine), Freddy Lättekivi (Institute of Translational Medicine, Tartu University)

Join us for a seminar and roundtable (with invitations only) to discuss the pros and cons of utilizing data in healthcare.
