The European Platform for Neurodegenerative Diseases (EPND) is creating new pathways for collaborative research, building a platform, tools and services to support data and sample sharing from neurodegenerative disease research studies. Our goal: to accelerate biomarker research, and support the development of new diagnostics and treatments.
Individual researchers, biobanks and institutions face many methodological challenges, such as the best way to collect biosamples, how to process them to maintain the highest quality possible, and how to rigorously validate assays to ensure they are accurate. These challenges are hugely amplified in large-scale biomarker research, when biosamples are drawn from multiple cohorts and studies.
In our interactive, online Workshop on Biomarker Best Practices, EPND experts will present our new SOPs and best practices, explaining how individual researchers, laboratories and biobanks can overcome some of the obstacles they may face in collecting, processing or sharing biosamples.
There'll be plenty of time for Q&A, so come armed with questions!
