in conjunction with IFCC WorldLab Seoul 2022

26 - 30 June 2022  - Coex, Seoul, Korea

Young Scientists (YS) are the future of laboratory medicine and comprise the major workforce of laboratory professionals. Future leaders need to be trained and encouraged to succeed in their role, ideally with the support of experienced leaders. To make this feasible, YS must have activities that encourage their participation, offer opportunities of training and improve communication and networking. 

In order to achieve these aims, IFCC Executive Board has approved an initiative entitled “IFCC Young Scientists FORUM” to be held just ahead of and in conjunction with the WorldLab 2022 Congress in Seoul, Korea.

The scientific program at the FORUM will provide the young scientists an excellent opportunity and open discussion platform for a scientific and personal experience, exchanging ideas with colleagues and establishing new acquaintances. Young Scientists will present and discuss their activities in laboratory medicine, benefit from career skills development. Following the FORUM, the participants will attend the Worldlab Congress to be held in Seoul, Korea from 26th to 30th June 2022.

YSF grants will cover travel and accommodation expenses of the selected participants with a lump sum corresponding to EUR 1.500. Young Scientists can apply if fulfilling the selection criteria indicated in the application form. 

Young Scientists interested in applying should contact their National Representative (see IFCC Full and Affiliate members Representatives contacts at to obtain all necessary information. 

Organizing Committee:

Task Force for Young Scientists: Santiago Fares Taie (AR); Giulia Sancesario (IT); Joe El-Khoury (US); Ashlin Rampul (ZA); Intanti W. Masfufa (ID); Claudia Imperiali (ES).

Biochemical Genetics in Functional Diagnosis and
Monitoring of Inborn Errors of Metabolism

The IFCC Task Force Young Scientists would like to invite you to our ninth educational webinar for scientists and laboratorians, brought to you by the IFCC Task Force Young Scientists. This educational program focuses on the biochemical genetics in diagnosis and monitoring of inborn errors of metabolism.

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are a large and heterogeneous group of genetic diseases. In most of these conditions, the presence of variants in specific genes leads to enzyme deficiencies that affect a particular metabolic step. For the majority of IEM, early diagnosis prevents the onset of severe clinical symptoms, thus reducing morbidity and mortality. This webinar will help us to understand better the different lab diagnostic approaches and latest techniques available.
