Conference and the City:-
Biobanks are collections of human biological tissue specimens and related health data. Biobank research hopes to provide novel insights into the genetic component of disease, ultimately leading to a more personalized approach to healthcare.
Las Vegas, Nevada, includes top universities which teaches about stem cell, tissue engineering also comprises of researches .Thus for the conferences its quite easy to have professors related to this field as they are the main people of the conference. Last but not the least, Las Vegas, is also attractive for tourists visiting and participating in the conference.
Thus, Las Vegas can be choosed as one of the bestest venue to hold conferences like “Biobank”
One of the major outcomes of the Human Genome Project (HGP) is the advancement of biobanks, which are collections of biospecimens from patients and volunteer donors combined with their personal information, clinico-pathological features and even research data . In the post-genomic era, biospecimen collection is becoming the main mechanism of delivering personalized diagnostics and tailored individualized therapeutics. Therefore, biobanks are considered the primary resource that will help shape the future of human health through precision medicine (PM). Briefly, PM can be defined as the right treatment for the right patient at the right time, every time. To be implemented efficiently, PM relies mainly on elucidating the dynamic interplay between the environment (living, non-living), lifestyle and social well-being and an individual’s genomic make up in both health and disease status. Therefore, improving our understanding of the environment and lifestyle components, their digitalization, and especially assessing their contribution either a prevention or risk factor is crucial to developing customized disease-specific and/or public health strategies.
Biobank In Las Vegas:-
Genomic science represents a new frontier for health research and will provide important tools for personalizing health care. Biospecimen-based research is an important mechanism for expanding the genomic research capacity, and indigenous peoples are a target of biospecimen-based research due to their relative isolation and the potential to discover rare or unique genotypes. This study explored Native Las Vegasian perceptions of and expectations for biobanking. Considered together, these findings suggest that biobanking should be guided by six principles that comprise “G.R.E.A.T. Research:” (Governance, Re-consent, Education, Accountability, Transparency, Research priorities). These recommendations are being shared with biobanking facilities in Las Vegas as they develop protocols for biobanking participation, governance, and education. These findings also inform researchers and indigenous peoples throughout the world who are working on biobanking and genomic research initiatives in their nations.
According to the report, advancement in technology in the field of personalized medicine is one of the major contributors to the growth of the market. Personalized medicine allows drugs to be developed according to the genetic makeup of a person. Biobanks store the data related to a person's genetic characteristics, which can be accessed by the scientist for research and drug discovery.
