Garvan Institute of Medical Research

Karena Pryce has been in genetic and molecular research for 15 years. For the past eight years, she has set up and managed biobanks, which have ranged in size from large (500,000) to small (3,000) and have included different cultures and ethnicities. In 2013, Pryce managed a biobank with specimens from all over the world, but primarily contained Australian Indigenous specimens dating back to the early 1950s. For the past few years, she has been managing the biobanks and specimens for clinical trials and studies, including the implementation of laboratory information management systems (LIMS), recruitment of participants, and processing of specimens. Pryce is a member of the International Society for Biological and Environmental Biorepositories (ISBER) and the Australasian Biospecimen Network Association (ABNA).
