Liquid biopsis, biobanking and clinical studies

In specific, the consortium will help bridge the gap between basic and clinical research through stimulating close collaborations and supporting biobanking efforts. Therefore, we write and bring in to (clinical) practice practical flows for the biobanking of human body material for (inter)national academic clinical studies and general research, as well as support the set-up of a national pediatric-specific biobank collection. The access to patient material via this biobanking effort is crucial for the translation of (basic) research findings to the clinic, and is of utmost importance for the development and selection of the best fit treatment for each patient, the focus of personalized medicine.
