Clinical Diagnostics & Research 2018

13 2 1225

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.

Attendees of the 2018 event can look forward to presentations and discussion on a range of topics, including:

  • Pandemic
    • Global detection
    • Enabling policy, rapid response
    • Local labs
    • How testing is deployed
  • POC testing
    • Integration
    • Practicality
    • Biology
  • Emerging trends
    • Bringing new tech to the market
  • Medical Laboratory Science Education
    • Technology diffusion
    • Bench to bedside, bedside to community
    • Target therapeutic ranges

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.
