Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committee, it gives me great pleasure, to invite you to the Regional European Biomedical Laboratory Science Congress and the 4th Greek Medical Laboratory Technologists Conference, under the patronage of EPBS, which will be held in Athens, Greece on 5-8 December, 2013.

Our primary goal is to develop the profession of Biomedical Scientists and emphasize our role in the health care system, where Biomedical laboratory Science plays an important role throughout the world, providing excellent clinical laboratory service for the wellbeing of the patients.

This Biomedical congress promises to be a memorable professional and scientific experience and is expected to draw hundreds of highly qualified participants from around the world, to discuss and share the latest knowledge in biomedical laboratory science: Pathologists, Medical Scientists, Medical Laboratory Technologists and Technicians, researchers, as well as Laboratory Suppliers from all fields of Laboratory Medicine.

Featuring distinguished speakers the high-quality scientific program will broaden perspectives, by exploring innovations in the latest diagnostic and research technology and by promoting modern scientific and technological developments in Biomedical Science, in the following scientific fields: Haematology-Blood Bank, Immunology, Microbiology, Biochemistry-Clinical Chemistry, Cytology, Molecular Biology-Genetics, Pathological Anatomy, Certification and Accreditation of Laboratories, Bio safety, Bioinformatics and Ethics in the Biomedical Laboratory.

Furthermore, our scientific programme will include information about prospects and career opportunities, as well as the Certification for the Biomedical Scientists, in Europe and globally.

EBSC2013 is an ideal opportunity to share knowledge and gain deeper insight into all aspects of Laboratory Medicine, not only by participating in workshops and attending oral and poster presentations, but also by visiting the trade exhibition where all the latest in technological advances will be displayed.

This is also a unique opportunity for the Medical Laboratory Suppliers to participate in the trade exhibition, where they will gain exposure to all of their current, as well as potential, customers from all fields of Laboratory Medicine (special project: acquisto viagra generico in Italia).

We also look forward to welcoming you to Athens, known for its history. Despite the tight schedule and besides all the hard work during our meetings, there will be some spare time for social events to experience Athens with its rich culture and heritage, offering participants the opportunity to enjoy the sights of our fascinating city.

Yours faithfully
