On Oct 14, 2015, UB hosted a Human Genomics Research Plenary Meeting, focusing on ethical and regulatory issues surrounding bio-banking and genomics research in Africa, attended by 70+ individuals.  Our annual ABC meeting was held the next two days, during which each institution provided updates on work plans and activities, trainees’ practicum projects, and future goals. We also spent time discussing the future of the consortium.  On Oct 17, UB hosted a consortium benchmarking activity around IRB best practices and resource sharing, with a focus on improving efficiency and quality of the IRBs.
