On January 13th and 14th 2022, the Center for Translational Cancer Research organized the virtual third Indian Cancer Genome Atlas (ICGA) Conference 2022 "Biobanking to Omics - Collecting the Global Experience." This conference was planned as the steppingstone to help ICGA understand the road ahead and the probable roadblocks in its preparatory phase as ICGA begins to streamline the tumor tissue biobanking and multi-omics efforts in the Indian subcontinent. The first day of the conference was dedicated to updates on the current status of ICGA, the future prospect, and the global understanding of multi-omics efforts. The key highlights included two keynote speeches by Dr Wui Jin Koh, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Office, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and by Dr Christina Curtis, Associate Professor, Stanford University School of Medicine. The first day ended with an intriguing panel discussion on "ICGA updates and Future Steps." The second day focused on biobanking practices across the globe and several aspects of biobank setup such as infrastructure, maintenance, quality control, patient consent, and lessons learned from established biobanking setups. The talk by Rosita Kammler, Head, Translational Research Coordination, International Breast Cancer Study Group, Switzerland, and Ruhul Amin, Director, Bangladesh Medical Research Council were the key highlights. The second day also ended with an engaging panel discussion on "Tumor tissue biobanking - national and international perspectives." Overall, the conference was well received and had good attendance from national and international students, researchers, and faculty from academia as well as industry.
