The full education team headed to Lyon, France to visit Lyon Catholic University and present the Master’s degree lecture “Biobank Management”.

Built in 2017 around an old prison, the University building unites traditional architecture and modernity. Fifteen students, in their first year of Master’s degree, attended the “Introduction in Computerized Management of Biobanks” lecture.

After a first round of introduction and summary of the students’ first internships, the lecture took place into two parts. A theoretical approach on the importance of data in biobanks was discussed followed by a practical example with discovery of SLIMS. Students saw how to register patents, collect samples, and automatically process and store them.

The teachers were delighted to speak with such enthusiastic and professionally driven students.
