Clinical Diagnostics and Research

Blah BlahWelcome to LabRoots’ 6th Annual Clinical Diagnostics & Research free online conference! The event is now available on-demand and you can attend sessions including keynotes sessions by Dr. Linda Thienpont, Katie Serrano, and Dr. Edward Watson Hook, III. 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. Clinical diagnostics has become exciting in recent years as advances in new techniques aid in fulfilling the potential of personalized medicine.

Attendees can earn free CME and CE Credits while watching an impressive group of presenters who will discuss a range of medical, clinical and research topics including:

  • FDA regulation of Laboratory Developed Tests
  • Clinical application of LC-MS/MS
  • Clinical Next-generation Sequencing
  • Toxicology, Laboratory Test Utilization
  • Standardization of Laboratory medicine
  • New lipid lowering guidelines- helpful or harmful?
  • Clinical Genomics and Personalized Healthcare

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. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global clinical community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

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.
