Bloodwise Childhood Leukemia Cell Bank wins Biobank of the year 2017.

Bloodwise Childhood Leukemia Cell Bank has been awarded UK Biobank of the year 2017. The award was presented at UK Biobanking Showcase on 18th October, 2017 in London.

The award, presented this year by Phil Quinlan, Centre Director UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre, is designed to highlight the work of Biobanks who go above and beyond in supporting research. This year, Biobanks were asked to nominate themselves for the award by submitting two research case studies that detail how their work has enabled high quality research. The panel selecting the winner, drawn from the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre (TDCC) Steering Committee, noted: ‘the very targeted use of the collection and was particularly impressed with the role of the biobank in coordinating samples to facilitate international research into rare diseases.’  

UK Biocentre congratulates Anne and her team on this achievement and is pleased to continue to support the Bloodwise CellBank.
