BioLink call 2016: The SNSF supports three projects
The SNSF is supporting three projects that aim to create biobank networks by harmonising their IT systems for research purposes.
In 2016, the SNSF launched the first call for connecting biobanks by harmonising their IT systems for research purposes. In total, 8 applications were submitted. Based on the recommendations of a panel of international experts, the SNSF decided to support 3 projects:
- Holger Moch (University of Zurich), "PathoLink: Connecting biobanks to determine mechanisms of metastasis formation and chemoresistance"
- Katharina Rentsch (University of Basel), "Biobanking for state-of-the-art Sepsis research"
- Peter Johannes Wild (University of Zurich), "Digital Cancer Biobank – zBioLink"
The SNSF will launch the next BioLink call in 2018.
