Welcome to 'Researcher Perspectives on Biobanking in Victoria' survey

Dear Researcher,

This anonymous survey is designed to be completed by researchers who have used, are using, or plan to use biospecimens/data or biobanking services within Victoria in their research methods. This survey aims to investigate:
1. the needs and opinions of researchers towards current biobanking practices in Victoria, and
2. the researchers' view on future development/model of biobanks in Victoria.

We would encourage you to contribute your views on biobanking in Victoria. Your feedback will allow biobanks, their stakeholders and funders to understand the research demands for biobanking in Victoria. The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Aggregate results from the survey will be published.

This survey is conducted by Victorian Cancer Biobank, a consortium that provides high quality biospecimen, data and services to facilitate cancer research. The Victorian Cancer Biobank is supported by the Victorian Government through the Victorian Cancer Agency, a business unit of the Department of Health and Human Services.
