Chair: Suzanne Vercauteren

The ISBER Pediatric Special Interest Group focuses on pediatric biobanking specific issues and aims to provide leadership in the area of pediatric biobanking, develop pediatric biobanking guidelines and foster collaborations.


The goals of this Special Interest Group are:

  • Increase awareness of pediatric specific biorepositories
  • Identify issues that are specific to pediatric biobanking such as third party consent, vulnerable populations, small sample size, and provide a forum to discuss opportunities and possible solutions
  • Develop a platform to exchange best practices related to biobanking of pediatric samples
  • Enable collaborations and create networks to increase availability of pediatric sample cohorts
  • Public dissemination of our group’s findings to the international biobanking community
