null Legal problems of biobanks
Asaf Grauer Rodoy

To Asaf Grauer Rodoy of the Department of Criminal Law at the Universidad de Valencia for the study Problemes jurídics dels biobancs (Legal problems of biobanks).

As a result of the recent introduction of Act 14/2007, the Spanish legal system has recognised the bio-bank phenomenon for the first time. However, the existing legislation is a long way from resolving all the doubts which have arisen in practice. 

The project aims to conduct a thorough study which provides a satisfactory explanation of the legal reality and of the uses of bio-banks in modern society.  To achieve this, it will analyse a range of issues which the legislation has avoided but which are essential for the legal regulation of biobanks.
