Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of Turkish Society of Clinical Biochemistry and congress organizing committee, I am very pleased and honored to invite you to the “5th EFLM-UEMS European Joint Congress in Laboratory Medicine” which will be held in Antalya, Turkey, on October 10-13, 2018 at Titanic Beach Lara Hotel.

Owing to the theme of “Laboratory Medicine at the Clinical Interface” , invited speakers are experts from laboratory medicine and clinical medicine as well. Building on the success of previous congresses, 5th EFLM-UEMS European Joint Congress in Laboratory Medicine will include plenary sessions, symposiums, oral and poster presentations.

The Joint Congress will provide an ideal forum to stimulate intense discussions in laboratory medicine as well as to establish collaborations which is very important for young professionals in the field.

Antalya, the beautiful city on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, is well known not only with its natural and cultural beauties but also historical places especially ruins of antic cities. The congress venue promises the participants take a break from the intensive scientific program and enjoy Turkish cuisine and social program in the autumn days. Pre and post-congress tours will make your visit unforgettable.

Only through your kind participation, we may enjoy a fruitful congress feast. We are expecting your valuable contributions to the 5th EFLM-UEMS European Joint Congress in Laboratory Medicine.

I look forward to welcoming you all in Antalya, October 10-13, 2018.
