Current Dean's Workshops

Welcome to the Dean's Workshops website

The Dean's Workshops series brings together physicians and scientists from across the School of Medicine, the Yale medical center, and Yale University to address topics of critical importance in advancing biomedical research and patient care.

The workshops serve as a forum for new ideas and collaborations across disciplines.

The Why’s and How’s of Biobanking: The Yale Center for Clinical Investigation

Workshop details

Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 1:00–3:30 p.m.
The Anlyan Center Auditorium, N143
300 Cedar St., New Haven

A reception with refreshments will follow the Dean’s Workshop.

This Dean’s Workshop will review operational aspects of establishing collections of human materials and the ways in which resources at Yale School of Medicine can be used to support biorepositories. Topics to be covered include methods for collection, processing, and storage of the samples, use of the electronic medical record to aid in identifying subjects and organizing data, and regulatory requirements for obtaining and managing specimens. The newly created Yale Center for Clinical Investigation (YCCI) biorepository facility will be introduced.
