DCEG is working through the NCI Center for Global Health (CGH) on the Low-and Middle-Income Countries Biobank and Cohort Network (BCNet) International Working Group. The aim of BCNet is to provide a platform for collaboration between its partners, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the international community, to support biobanking and cohort-building activities, and to develop sustainable biobanking research infrastructures to facilitate the collection of high-quality biological samples for research and clinical care, using best practice principles and guidelines. In collaboration with NCI-CGH, IARC hosted the first BCNet International Working Group meeting in Lyon, France in September 2013, as the first step in establishing the network. The steering committee will meet again in February 2014 to develop short and long term goals for the network activities.
