On November 9an audience of clinicians, researchers, top scientists, academics, and industry and pharmaceutical and biotech professionals will come together under one virtual roof to learn from recognized speakers who are driving innovation in diagnostics and precision medicine.

For more than a decade, this online event has been a favorite meeting place for the clinical diagnostic, research and laboratory medicine communities. And, once again, Labroots’ Clinical Diagnostics & Research 2022 program will deliver on its commitment to scientific breakthrough in the areas of emerging diagnostic technologies, insights into SARS-CoV-2 and Monkeypox, precision medicine and special populations, and the role of the laboratory in promoting equity . Don’t miss a minute of the cutting-edge 4-track science agenda with convenient on-demand viewing.

Educational program highlights include (but are not limited to):

  • Keynote presentation titled “Implementing Serological and Molecular Tools to Inform COVID-19 Patient Management,” with a live Q&A session, presented by Dr. Jennifer Taher. “Although several years have passed since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are still many things we don’t know,” commented Dr. Jennifer Taher, FCACB, Clinical Biochemist, Mount Sinai Hospital, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine; assistant professor, University of Toronto, laboratory medicine and pathobiology, co-head, GENCOV. “It is important to identify groups at risk of poor outcomes and to optimize patient care. This is exactly what the GENCOV study aims to do.”

  • Easily on-demand presentations for immediate viewing when the event is live regarding some discussions on the benefits of having faster next-generation sequencing data in outbreak settings, the use of PCR tiling for sequencing of Monkeypox, methods used in the detection of autoantibodies associated with IIM, fairness in laboratory medicine, and the Monkeypox virus and its current epidemic characteristics.

  • The benefits of bioinformatics solutions and computational variant classification will be explored, and how to move towards comprehensive profiling while reducing costs, time and labor during QIAGEN sponsored presentations.

  • Multiple panel presentations sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific on topics spanning ART adherence disruption and impact on emerging antiretroviral drug resistance mutations, the current state of the molecular testing market with a key focus on pharmacogenomics, integrase-targeting HIV-1 genotyping – insights into antiretroviral drug resistance surveillance and the technical challenges of standard urine culture (SUC) in the identification of uropathogens, and much more!
