I have defended the PhD thesis in law on the topic “Mixed consent as the prerequisite for the freedom of biomedical research” and would like to share my insights in the congress. Research biobanks collect human biosamples and the related information, which in the future can be used for comprehensive scientific research. However, in spite of the undeniably positive effect, one should not ignore the theoretical, practical or even ethical problems arising from the operations of biobanks. Research aim: To find a proper legal regime, which would maximally protect the human rights, but also would not deny the very essence of the research to have an opportunity for a free choice of the scope of the research, the opportunity to experiment, and in this way to make discoveries in the field of health that are important for all the society.
