Clinical Diagnostics & Research 2018

LabRoots invites you to the 9th Annual Clinical Diagnostics & Research free online conference! Clinical diagnostics is an ever-changing field of medicine and research, challenged with combining several different scientific disciplines into one for the sake of diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The constant flux in the field is due to continuous progress made with advances in laboratory testing and patient care and treatment. With new technologies and treatments available, updates in regulatory processes are also necessary to ensure patient safety and proper practices.

By bringing together clinicians, researchers, medical experts and professionals from around the world, LabRoots aims to help drive collaborations and in turn, advances in clinical diagnostics, research and medicine. This complementary conference offers an amazing opportunity to benefit from interacting with a global community of like-minded colleagues from the comfort of home.


The 2018 Event Will Include Topics Such As:

  • POC/POC Testing
  • Regulatory
  • Pain Management
  • Laboratory Testing and Management
  • Opioids
  • Hematology/Cardio
  • Informatics/Med Data Analytics


Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so.

  • Michael Laposata, MD, PhD
    Professor and Chairman, Department of Pathology, University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston
    Biography
      Dr. Michael Laposata is the Edward and Nancy Fody Professor of Pathology and Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He is the pathologist-in-chief at Vanderbilt University Hospital and director of clinical laboratories. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and completed a postdoctoral research fellowship and residency in Laboratory Medicine (Clinical Pathology) at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He took his first faculty position at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia in 1985, where he was an Assistant Professor and director of the hospital's coagulation laboratory. In 1989, he became Director of Clinical Laboratories at the Massachusetts General Hospital and was appointed to faculty in pathology at Harvard Medical School. His research program, with more than 160 peer reviewed publications, has focused on fatty acids and their metabolites. His research group is focused on the study of fatty acid alterations in cystic fibrosis. Dr. Laposata's clinical expertise is in the field of blood coagulation, with a special expertise in the diagnosis of hypercoagulable states. Dr. Laposata implemented a system whereby the clinical laboratory data in coagulation and other areas of laboratory medicine are systematically interpreted with the generation of a patient specific narrative paragraph by a physician with expertise in the area. This service is essentially identical to the service provided by physicians in radiology and anatomic pathology, except that it involves clinical laboratory test results. In 2005, Dr. Laposata was recognized by the Institute of Quality in Laboratory Medicine of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for this innovation. Dr. Laposata is the recipient of 14 major teaching prizes at Harvard, the Massachusetts General Hospital, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. His recognitions include the 1989 Lindback award, a teaching prize with competition across the entire University of Pennsylvania system; the 1998 A. Clifford Barger mentorship award from Harvard Medical School; election to the Harvard Academy of Scholars in 2002, and to the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Academy for Excellence in Teaching in 2009; and the highest award - by vote of the graduating class - for teaching in years 1 and 2 at Harvard Medical School in 1999, 2000, and 2005.
