Walloon biobank platform

The aim of the Walloon biobank is to create a formal structure and network for the biobanks currently housed in hospital laboratories. Europe has actually identified “biobanking” as one of the key factors for innovation in life sciences. This project is intended to enable access to a large inventory of samples for the whole scientific community, academic and industrial. The creation of a Walloon biobank is thus an essential tool in the development of translational medicine in Wallonia.
