The International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER) 2023 Annual Meeting will be held from May 3-5, 2023 in Seattle, USA. This will be a hybrid event and those unable to attend in-person will have the opportunity to participate virtually.

ISBER 2023 will bring together biobanking practitioners and leaders from all over the world, providing opportunities for academia, industry, pharma, and government agencies to learn, connect, discuss, and collaborate.

Biobanking science and practice is a multidisciplinary system integrated with many dynamic fields, including but not limited to, biobanking research, technology, management, policy, regulation, economics, industry, politics, security, quality, and ethical, religious, legal, cultural, social issues.

Communication among the boundaries of these fields are critical for biobanking success and this is central to the theme of the ISBER 2023 Annual Meeting – Come As You Are: Building Biobanking Bridges.
