Post-pandemic situation and Current Trends in Lab Medicine-Meeting the Future”

South Korea, Seoul - June 25th to 26th, 2022

Young Scientists (YS) are the future of laboratory medicine and comprise the major workforce of laboratory professionals. Future leaders need to be trained and encouraged to succeed in their role, ideally with the support of experienced leaders. To make this feasible, the IFCC Task Force for Young Scientists (TF-YS) invites you to register to the "IFCC Young Scientists FORUM”, where YS will have opportunities of training and improve communication and networking. The scientific program at the FORUM will provide the young scientists an excellent opportunity for an open discussion platform about scientific and personal experiences, exchange of ideas among colleagues and best practices. Young Scientists will present and discuss their activities in laboratory medicine and benefit from career skills development.
