Summary/Abstract: Biobanks are one of the 10 Ideas Changing the World Right now – according to TimeMagazine (2009). Samples and data deposition have become an increasing. trend in theworld. Europe has invested a lot of money into infrastructures responsible for collectionand storage of human biological samples. Poland, a country with a population of over38.5 million people has just started investing funds into this powerful and indispensabletool for scientific research. Consortium of Polish Biobanks named as BBMRI.plconsisting of seven well-established biobanks developed a project for the Creation ofthe Polish Biobanking Network in order to organise our infrastructures according toworld-recognized standards. The main tasks include: creation of Consortium of PolishBiobanks, development of IT solutions coherent with pan European needs, developmentof quality assurance tools, establishment of the Biobanking National Node, developmentof quality control programme and analysis of Ethical, Legal and Social Implications ofresearch using human samples. Results of this project will increase Poland’s positionin the international research arena of biomedicine, make our biorepositories open forinternational collaboration and in the future will contribute to the development ofpersonalized medicine.
