ISNTD: DxConnect Virtual Biobank

This ISNTD Connect session will look at the potential of virtual biobanks to advance the development of diagnostics for neglected tropical diseases. In particular, the webinar will introduce the DxConnect Virtual Biobank, a collaborative, open-access platform launched by FIND, the global alliance for diagnostics, to provide a global view of infectious disease samples available worldwide and to connect researchers and diagnostic developers who need these samples with the institutions that collect or store them.

Prof Joseph Ndung’u (Executive Director, FIND Kenya), Dominic Allen (DxConnect Virtual Biobank Project Lead, FIND) and Dr Aubrey Cunnington (Digital Diagnostics for Africa Network & Imperial College London) will be presenting during this webinar on Thursday, 7 October 2021, at 14:00–15:30 UTC.

ISNTD is helping researchers and professionals stay connected to discuss ongoing research and issues in tropical and global health. These online meetings are open to all and free!
