08:40am – 09:00am | Introduction to BCNET - Marianne Henderson, NCI
09:00am – 10:45am | Importance of Pathology in Biobanking
Aim: Human tissue biobanks provide the foundation for the development of personalized medicine. The pathologist plays a fundamental role in the quality control of collected tissue samples and is a crucial scientific contributor in the research carried out later. In this section will be discussed about the importance of pathologist in Biobanks as an essential part of translational medicine, helping to provide an effective interface between research, development and medical care, especially in the age of precision medicine.
Discussion Leaders: Antonio Hugo Campos, MD,PhD / Gisele C. de Almeida MD, PhD (Barretos Cancer Hospital, Barretos, Brazil)
09:00am – 09:30am | Antonio Huertas Salgado, PhD (Instituto Nacional de Cancerologia, INC, Colombia)

10:30am – 10:50am | Discussion
10:50am – 11:20pm | Coffee + Poster Evaluation
11:20am –13:00pm | Quality management of biological samples for molecular downstream analysis.
Aim: Biobanks provide a window of opportunity to store and add value to material from rare cases allowing their future use in biomedical research. Variable biospecimen collection, processing, and storage practices may introduce variability in biospecimen quality and analytical results. In this section will present some aspects about challenges and strategies to ensure a quality of samples for molecular analysis (standardization of biospecimen and handling procedures).

13:30pm – 14:30pm – Lunch
14:30pm – 16:20pm | Ethical and Legal Aspects in Biobanking
Aim: A worldwide concern has been the creation of a harmonized biobanks network that respects the ethical, legal and technical precepts of the member countries. In this context is important to highlight international discussions about the importance of the feasibility of cooperation between national and international institutions as well the need to harmonize the recommendations with regard to language standards, forms of communication as well an unique terminology for designation of human biological materials. This section will discuss some guidelines for inform consent in Brazil and Latin American.
