MINI-WORKSHOPS IN TISSUE BIOREPOSITORIES
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM (CDT)
The MINI-WORKSHOPS IN TISSUE BIOREPOSITORIES, co-sponsored by the UAB CCTS and the UAB Department of Pathology’s Special Pathology Seminar, focus primarily on the use of human tissues in research. The purpose of the workshops is to aid investigators considering utilizing any type of human and other tissues and/or bodily fluids in their research, as well as those who may want to understand issues as to tissue related variables which may affect or influence research results (e.g. bias). The basics of biorepository operations will be explored so that the development of small tissue collections by investigators may be optimized and their success ensured. Additional topics include how to optimally utilize the current UAB infrastructure in tissue resources and how to access tissue resources available outside UAB (e.g. at NIH Institutes). Workshops are held in the Finley Conference Center from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; lunch is provided.
The University of Alabama School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The University of Alabama School of Medicine designates this education activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s) TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
