Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is a great honor and pleasure for me to invite you to attend the 8th Conference of Romanian Association of Medical Laboratories with international participation, which will be held in Sibiu, 28-31 May 2014.

The scientific program will contain topics covering biochemistry, hematology, microbiology and immunology, focusing on the importance of laboratory medicine services to clinical medicine, by contributing to the development and implementation of diagnostic strategies.

An important highlight of the event is to identify problems (either scientific or technical) we are confronted to in our current practice and to provide solutions and guidelines on how to solve them. Clinical laboratory is meant to support a high quality healthcare management, thus establishing standards for scientific and technical aspects of good laboratory practice is also one of the main goals of the Romanian Association of Medical Laboratories and of this event.

As our profession is in a permanent and strong partnership with the clinical diagnostic industry, the participants will benefit from the exhibition of equipment, reagents, supplies, software and from the workshops organized by the clinical diagnostic providers, which is an excellent opportunity for the development and transfer of technical innovations to clinical laboratory professionals.

The Conference venue is the historical city of Sibiu, former European cultural capital in 2007. Its multicultural life, the rich cultural heritage, a well preserved medieval, baroque and Art Nouveau architecture and a beautiful mountain landscape will hopefully contribute to a warm and welcoming atmosphere, providing the opportunity for the people to connect during the social programme.

I look forward to meeting you in May!
