overview

Within this workshop, we would like to introduce a real change in emphasis to using biobanks rather just how to set biobanks up. We would like to get you involved in this thinking process. We want to illustrate how important it is to apply business development strategies to summarize and creatively brainstorm any product idea in order to reinvigorate the biobanking in particular. We want to teach you how to draw business models to be adapted to the changing needs of the marketplace to reveal new possibilities and embrace success.

For example, drug development in oncology is undergoing a substantial shift nowadays. The drivers for this are multi-factorial. While 7 wonders of the future world of anticancer drug development have been described to be the key players, the next-generation of biobanking is lacking!
If you are ready to change the rules, you belong to this workshop.

  • Understand Strategic vision and business development as key features in biobanking
  • Spotlight on how to think big, identify your apple, and propose smart plan
  • Gain insight in the strategic business development principles
  • Snapshot on the next-generation biobanking
  • Gain insight in the challenges of sustaining biobanks 
  • Learn how to use global regulatory, legal and ethical compliance considerations to reinforce your biobank for better use of your sample collections
  • Interactive dialogues and exchange experiences with and among participants

After several positions at different  Universities or Institutions of Belgium, Laurent has over 16 years of experience working in the Life Sciences field. In 2012, Laurent became Assistant Professor at the Free University of Brussels VUB), and developed several skills in stem cells isolation, maintenance and differentiation and was the first to identify liver stem cells from healthy non-manipulated livers by playing with an innovative technique based on Aldehyde dehydrogenase. Laurent Dollé is currently the Operating Director of BWB (Biobanking Wallonia-Brussels; Belgium).

BWB

BWB (Biothèque Wallonia-Bruxelles) regroups an impressive number of biobanks whose mission is to create and implement a virtual network to unify and make accessible human materials and associated data managed by the biobanks of Wallonia-Brussels’ territory. Our mission is to help you in identifying human samples that suit your queries; through a single-point of contact platform we facilitate the access to biological resources to public and private research teams exclusively for scientific research and not intended for human application. Our services benefit to Big Pharma, pharmaceutical, biotech, in vitro diagnostics and big data companies, and academia.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
