AACB 55th Annual Scientific Conference
12-14 September 2017, Pullman Melbourne Albert Park Hotel, Melbourne VIC
It is our pleasure to invite you to the Australasian Association of Clinical Biochemist’s 55th Annual Scientific Conference to be held in Melbourne's Albert Park lake area. The venue is close to one of our premier hospitals, and this has inspired our 2017 meeting theme of Time Sensitive Testing.
The program is designed to provide a mix of current concepts and strategies to deliver the timely diagnostic services required for clinical management. In keeping with the meeting theme and great location, we are delighted to welcome Professor Hans Schneider from The Alfred Hospital, to present the 2017 David Curnow plenary lecture.
We welcome our local and international speakers, industry partners and delegates to participate in the scientific and social program. Dr Sunil Sethi, from the National Hospital Singapore and current president of the Asia Pacific Federation of Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine, will deliver the Tuesday plenary lecture on “Laboratory response times - meeting clinical needs”. Prof Olaf Drummer (Head of School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine’s Department of Forensic Medicine and Deputy Director at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine) will deliver the closing thought provoking plenary lecture on drug driving from roadside to emergency to coroner. Complementing these plenary lecturers, concurrent symposium sessions will focus on relevant innovations in the field. The popular poster hot topic and oral sessions will again be offered in addition to the poster presentation sessions to showcase the work and achievements of our young and more experienced scientists and clinicians.
With great support again from our industry partners we anticipate this meeting to be both intellectually rewarding and thought provoking. We trust you find the scientific program to be outstanding and we look forward to your active participation.
