The 30th World Congress of Biomedical Laboratory Science 18-22 August 2012, Berlin, DE
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
After a period of more than 40 years it is time for German Association to host the IFBLS World Congress. On behalf of the Deutscher Verband Technischer Assistentinnen/ Assistenten in der Medizin e.V (dvta) – German Association of Biomedical Scientists – represented by the organizing committee it is a great pleasure and honor for us to invite you to the 30th World Congress of Biomedical Laboratory Science to be held in Berlin, Germany on 18th to 22nd August 2012.
Biomedical laboratory science plays an important role in the public and private health care system throughout the world, providing excellent clinical laboratory service for the wellbeing of patients. It is a great challenge to all biomedical scientists to further develop despite permanent changes (move along with constant changes) in medicine and public health areas and the constant threat of explosive increases in costs.
It is our primary common goal to develop the profession of biomedical scientists and to emphasize our role in the health care system. The 30th World Congress is a global event and hosts a large number of biomedical scientists, researchers, laboratory workers and business executives from around the world to discuss and share the latest knowledge in biomedical laboratory science. Furthermore the congress will strengthen co-operation between relevant organizations and built networks between colleagues, scientists and friends during this scientific gathering.
We, the organizing committee, will do our very best to provide an excellent scientific program for the benefit of all. But (despite the tight schedule) and besides all the hard work during our meetings there will be some spare time for social events and to experience historic Berlin with its rich culture and heritage.
We encourage you all to be part of this 30th Anniversary and are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin, during the summer season of 2012.
Chair of Organizing Committee
