The “DNA on Loan: Exploring Biobanking with Indigenous Values” will be a forum to explore the issues surrounding long term storage of biological samples when research involves the Indigenous Peoples of Canada. We will build from the former CIHR Guidelines for Health Research Involving Aboriginal People (2009), and the current Canadian Tri-council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (chapter 9, 2014). The objectives are to provide national and international views on good practice and policy in this area and encourage dialogue that will provide background for enhancing our current Canadian policy.

This event is supported by the Canadian Institute of Health Research Institute (CIHR) of Aboriginal Peoples' Health, CIHR Institute of Genetics and CIHR Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes.
