The EATB has many diverse functions:

  • EATB supports European and other international endeavours to improve tissue banking
  • EATB works with regulators to constantly strive for greater safety and efficacy.
  • EATB holds annual congresses to provide a forum for scientific, ethical and clinical activities relating to tissue banking and to provide a forum for presentation of research and collaborative working.
  • EATB contributes to formal consultations and seeks to actively involve its members in all its activities.
