SelectScience Virtual Analytical Summit 2020 logo

The event schedule has been announced for the new SelectScience® Virtual Clinical Chemistry Summit, launching on July 20, 2020. 

An entirely digital event, this Virtual Summit is designed to offer an interactive forum for clinical lab scientists, healthcare professionals and manufacturers to connect and share the latest diagnostic and point-of-care solutions at this critical time.

We will be joined by top speakers sharing fascinating insights in live presentations and Q&As throughout the event, as well as manufacturers operating right at the cutting edge of clinical innovation. Headline topics include COVID-19 and infectious diseases, cardiovascular disease, omics, diabetes, point-of-care testing, clinical mass spectrometry, clinical microbiology, and much more.

"I think the Summit is going to be well attended because people are still hungry for information, especially when they are currently unable to travel and attend conferences, so this is a great opportunity for me to present what I am trying to accomplish in my work." - Dr. Alan Wu,  Professor of Laboratory Medicine, UCSF, chief of the clinical chemistry and toxicology laboratories at San Francisco General Hospital & Virtual Clinical Chemistry Summit 2020 speaker
