In an active effort to focus on the diverse geographical background of its members, ISBER has established a regional meeting series to complement its annual meeting. These focused meetings will feature excellent technical programs on a variety of topics, poster sessions, exhibitions, and social events. 

The ISBER Symposium in Berlin is ISBER's European regional meeting in 2019. The symposium will consist of three plenary sessions, covering all major types of specimens. Throughout the symposium, international biospecimen research experts will present and discuss recent findings and developments in the field. This symposium is a great opportunity for delegates to network and discuss a topic that no other conference in the world covers.
