Medico Legal Society

There`s no better time to enjoy MLST. When you join MLST, you join a community of healthcare and legal professionals united by a common desire to learn, interact and collaborate. The Medical-Legal Society was founded after the introduction of the state forensic system in 1877 and was open to physicians trained to determine causes of death and holding positions as district coroners. Its stated objectives were “to enhance the official character of the coroner and to assist him in the performance of his duties; collect and exploit facts that have medico-legal value; and to generate general interest in the subject of forensic science and to promote its successful culture”. Many Harvard faculty members had associate status in the company. We host free lectures by prominent speakers in a range of disciplines on any topic of interest to our members (not always medical or legal). Meetings are held on average 4 times a year at the Liverpool Medical Institution at 114 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool. All physicians, lawyers and students from both professions are cordially invited to join the society. Medical members include forensic pathologists, dentists, police doctors, general practitioners and related professions. Legal members include lawyers, lawyers, judges, coroners, justices of the peace and academics. At the Society`s meeting on February 1, 1922, George Burgess Magrath described his experiences with autopsies and medico-legal cases. The President of the Society is appointed for two years and is composed alternately of the legal and medical professions.

The objective of most biorepositories is to collect, process, store and distribute human biological samples for basic, translational and clinical research. A biorepository that serves as a central hub provides researchers with an invaluable resource of appropriately studied and characterized biological samples with clinical information associated with patients. Expertise in standardization, quality control and information technology, as well as knowledge of cutting-edge research developments, are usually required for the development and management of biological repositories. The availability of low-cost, whole genomic profiles of individual tumors has opened up new possibilities for personalized medicine to provide the most appropriate treatments to individual patients with minimal toxicity. A biologic repository in support of personalized medicine therefore requires the highest operational standards as well as adequate funding, training and certification.

This review provides an overview of the development of an institutional cancer biorepository for clinical research and personalized medicine. We continue to explore, debate and discuss these issues in robust ways – join society to see how you can contribute and benefit.
