Biobanking at Scale to Support Precision Medicine

GenomeWebinar

Professor of Genetics, Rutgers University
COO, RUCDR Infinite Biologics, Human Genetics Institute of NJ

This webinar will outline how RUCDR Infinite Biologics, the world's largest university-based biorepository, has implemented workflows and processes to support precision medicine applications.

RUCDR Infinite Biologics, a unit of the Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey, has been perfecting the science of biobanking, bioprocessing, and analytics. In this webinar, Andrew Brooks will introduce how RUCDR Infinite Biologics has created novel workflows to address precision medicine applications and will present an overview of these workflows, cutting edge analytical approaches, and robust biomaterial storage processes.  

With a focus on primary sample processing and new technological innovations allowing for efficient and cost-effective nucleic acid extraction, he will describe how discovery processes are maximized, and precious biomaterial resources are protected for future analyses in both research and clinical applications.
