Event details

We are hosting an afternoon workshop for researchers looking for information on how to access patient samples and to inspire anyone thinking about more translational research.

This event is particularly aimed at ECRs and will provide guidance on what you will need to consider for fellowship and grant applications: tissue banks, the cost of NHS staff time, storage and transport of samples, etc.

The workshop will include:

  • The chance to meet key members of York hospital's Research and Development Unit
  • Details on patient sample resources currently available at the University of York
  • Advice and information on how to collaborate with York hospital or other partners for accessing clinical samples
  • An introduction to the University's procedures and how to navigate applying to carry out research with patient samples

Networking lunch and coffee will provide opportunities to meet the speakers and initiate new collaborations.
