Mark Barnes Presents at Virtual Asia Pacific Open Forum in Singapore

March 3, 2023

Health care partner Mark Barnes will speak at the Virtual Asia Pacific Open Forum presented by The Science Policy Think Tank in Singapore on March 3, 2023. Mark will discuss “International Use of Biospecimens and Associated Data.”

Despite national and international efforts to ensure diverse, well-characterized biospecimen samples are collected, handled, used, and shared in ways that consider and secure the patients’ rights while also allowing for research and innovation to flourish, the current environment is complex for both patients and researchers to navigate. The forum aims to strengthen global research with biospecimens in an ethical and socially responsible way.
