Lectures from Speaker 15-18 will be focused on the following: 
Topic: ISBER best practices: Biorepositories 101.
Lectures would be presented on Biorepositories 101, including best practices, which would educate the audience on the various issues that need to be recognized and dealt with in designing and managing a biorepository. The workshop will be useful to anyone thinking about or planning to establish a biorepository, as well as others who may have already started one, but would be interested in finding out how to further develop and expand their biorepository services. Part 1 of this workshop leads the audience through questions that should be asked and answered when considering the establishment of a human tissue biorepository. The answers to the questions will help them design the biorepository that is right for their needs. Part 2 delves more deeply into the details and issues of running and maintaining a biorepository. The workshop would cover and integrate the ISBER Best Practices. 
• Gain insight about the various repository models available
• Learn what issues should be considered when designing and operating a repository
• Discuss the various types of services your repository might want to provide (without performing the investigator’s research for them!)
• Understand the importance of quality control and safety in the repository
• Gain a better understanding about the legal, ethical, and regulatory issues that may affect the repository
• Understand the"nuts and bolts" of operating a repository
• Identify space and resources needed to begin a repository
• Understand the ISBER best practices
