Clinical Diagnostics & Research 2020

Eleven years ago LabRoots launched a new system of learning for a global scientific audience. Now, the 2020 Clinical Diagnostics and Research Virtual Event will again bring together clinicians, researchers, medical experts and professionals for the 11th time. LabRoots aims to elevate the level of collaboration and in turn, advance clinical diagnostics, research and medicine.

On November 12, 2020 thousands will join in a discussion of the 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.

This year's event will include the following topics and tracks:
 
Advances in Diagnostics Technologies
  • Molecular
  • Point of Care
  • Proteomics
Leveraging Laboratory Data
  • Opioid Crisis
Considerations for Specific Patient Populations
Laboratory Stewardship and Patient Safety

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Like the 2019 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots' most popular T-shirts.



Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2020 Clinical Diagnostics Virtual Event. Submission is free; submit your abstract here. 

Continuing Education
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
