Biobanking unearths samples that have been long lost in the backs of freezers and scientific information buried in dusty notebooks to make ground breaking discoveries for human health.
In an increasingly digital world, many scientists still work with basic paper and pen. Often, critical information gathered during clinical trials gets buried in laboratory notebooks or overly complex excel documents. Unearthing this information and creating a central hub for big scientific data is more than simply a technical advancement; it is critical to uncovering new scientific discoveries.
In this episode, we spoke with Grant Roesler, a systems analyst at Oregon Health & Science University, about how his team unearthed vital information from 50 disparate oncology-based research studies, breathing new life into buried samples and opening the door for future research possibilities.
