Originating back more than 5,000 years, Korea is one of the oldest countries in the world, and also one of the most unique. The capital, Seoul, is steeped in a rich history of over 600 years of culture and tradition but is also an exciting futuristic city featuring the latest state-of-the-art technology.
We look forward to the pleasure and privilege of inviting you to the 24th International Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC WorldLab Seoul 2020), slated for May 24-28, 2020 in Seoul, Korea. This most highly acclaimed meeting of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine is expected to gather an estimated 5,000 participants from over 100 countries.
We are proud to highlight that clinical chemistry related communities in Korea have been growing rapidly both in quantity and quality, with the Korean Society of Clinical Chemistry (KSCC) playing a pivotal role in research, training, education, and clinical practices as a hub of medical science in Korea since its establishment in 1983.
As such, the KSCC will do its utmost to produce invaluable and intriguing programs focusing on the latest developments and research, as well as providing a vision of the future of clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine in the world. Our well-organized infrastructure and rich experience in organizing national and international conferences, such as the 12th Asian-Pacific Congress of Clinical Biochemistry, are sure to make for a successful IFCC WorldLab Seoul 2020.
We truly believe that the Congress will be a highly rewarding international festival for everyone and will bring enhancement of the academic level and industrial development, which will contribute to improve the quality of life for all. Therefore, we encourage you to support the KSCC so you can have the chance to explore the beautiful city of Seoul and experience the exciting Korean culture.
We look forward to meeting you at the IFCC WorldLab Seoul 2020, Korea.
