In selecting the countries and expert legal reporters, the principal investigators began with the
20 countries and experts they previously used in their NIH-funded study of international biobanking laws.1 That study mostly involved developed countries engaged in or initiating biobanking programs. To increase diversity for this research project, 13 additional nations were selected. The experts for Vietnam and the American Indian Nations were unable to complete their reports, thereby leaving 31 countries for this study.
