We despatched our Chairman Clive Washington to Mersyside Biobank last week to meet with Richard Burkmar, Information Manager at Merseyside Biobank LRC.  Biobank has recently launched a programme of ‘active naturalist’ events and we though it would be good to build some bridges.  Clive had positive feedback from the meeting and we are looking forward to stronger ties in the future with Richard and the team at BioBank.
