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

The IFCC Task Force Young Scientists held its ninth educational webinar for scientists and laboratorians, brought to you by the IFCC Task Force Young Scientists. This educational program focused 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 helped us to understand better the different lab diagnostic approaches and latest techniques available.

 Conducting Research in Laboratory Medicine
an Online Interactive Session via ZOOM with the Experts
13th March, 2019 - the Aga Khan University, Karachi, Pakistan


 By Dr. Sibtain Ahmed (Clinical Chemistry, AKU)


An interactive Zoom session was organized by the section of Clinical Chemistry, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, The Aga Khan University (AKU) Karachi, Pakistan under the auspices of Pakistan society of Chemical Pathology (PSCP) and IFCC on 13th March, 2019 from 10 am to 12 pm. The agenda of this virtual podium was to ensure collaboration between IFCC senior members and young scientists from Pakistan. The session was structured in order to share the vast experience of well renowned scientists and senior members from PSCP and IFCC; alongside their overall vision related to research methodology to the budding scientists and Chemical Pathologists in the region at various levels of their profession and career. 




                     Participants connected via ZOOM               Dr. Graham Beastall delivering his presentation


Participants from Karachi assembled at AKU whereas more than 70 participants, from 25 different centers across 14 cities in Pakistan were connected through ZOOM. The program began with an introductory and welcome note by Dr. Sibtain Ahmed (Senior Instructor, Clinical Chemistry AKU). The first talk was delivered by Dr. Ashlin Rampul (Core member IFCC task force for young scientists). He gave an overview of the aims and vision of the task force and encouraged young scientists from the region to activity support and participate in the initiatives of this group.  He further emphasized on the importance of conducting research in Laboratory Medicine and provided guidance for the selection of appropriate research project based on certain parameters. The next presentation was the highlight of the program, it was delivered live by eminent scholar Dr. Graham Beastall (Former President IFCC). He gave an introduction to the IFCC research guide available free of cost on the IFCC webpage; followed by a detailed and comprehensive lecture on formulating a research plan, conducting the study and analyzing findings. The two talks were followed by 15 minutes of question and answer session, the two speakers especially Dr. Beastall responded to the queries pertaining to funding opportunities and low cost research projects for the under developed regions.

Participants from Karachi gathered at AKU




The final one hour of the virtual session was facilitated by presentations from senior faculty of Clinical Chemistry in Pakistan. Focusing on dissemination of research findings which is the high need of time, Dr. Imran Siddiqui (Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, AKU) gave some golden tips to ace the poster and oral presentations at various platforms. Dr. Lena Jafri (Assistant Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, AKU) enlisted the pearls and key steps in write-up of a manuscript and submission for publication. As selection of journals for publication along with adequate impact, authenticity and indexing is vital, this topic was addressed by Dr. Aysha Habib Khan Associate Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, AKU)  an eminent and devoted scholar. Most of the young trainees in Pakistan, enrolled in fellowship of the College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan in Clinical Chemistry face the dilemma of deciding between dissertations in comparison to publication of research articles in order to sit the exam. Dr. Adnan Zubairi (Professor, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Ziauddin Medical University Karachi) compared to the two, highlighted the pros vs cons and encouraged the need of quality research publications from the country.



The program was highly informative and aimed on building strong collaboration between centers across Pakistan and globally with the eminent scholars. Dr. Adnan Zubairi concluded the session with a note of thanks and appreciation. Feedback from participants was centered at the need of more such virtual sessions in the region as they proved to be highly beneficial especially for trainees working in far flung areas.  Dr. Beastall appreciated Dr. Sibtain Ahmed and commended PSCP; for the vision to hold this event and for making the arrangements. Speaking on the utility of such sessions he commented ‘the ability to hold national and international meetings at virtually no cost is clearly a model that will be adopted widely.’

Country representative-TFYS








ZACB 2016 IFCC TFYSParticipants at the session on “Scientific Writing”, organized by IFCC Task Force for  Young Scientists








On the 17th June 2016, an IFCC-ZACB-TFYS educational and networking event was successful held in Harare at the Rainbow Towers. The theme of the event was ‘Scientific Writing’. The event drew a diverse attendance from students in various disciplines and also professionals in both public and private sectors. The student comprised undergraduates in medicine (4), pharmacy (5), laboratory sciences (4) and nutritional science (6) and postgraduate students in chemical pathology (8) and medical microbiology (2). In attendance was also Prof Howard Morris (The IFCC-VLP for ZACB 2016).Prof. Hilda Matarira (ZACB President and AFCC Secretary) chaired the event. Click here to read the Session Programme








Prof. Matarira gave the opening remarks on scientific research by highlighting the application of scientific method to the investigation of relationships among natural phenomenon, and in solving a medical or technicalproblem. The results of scientific research need to be documented and disseminated. The workshop will help young scientist on developing, documenting and dissemination of scientific research results. A panel of experienced academics and researchers will lead the workshop. The purpose of the workshop was two folds: first is to give students a sequential approach to writing the research paper from selecting a topic, doing the research, organizing the materials, and producing the finished document. Secondly, to prepare future researchers to meet the demands and rigors of college writing and research. She concluded by opening the workshop and introducing the speaker, Dr. Maramba (Hematology Lecturer for Department of Medical Laboratory Science).








Dr. Aaron  Maramba began his presentation onthe topic “Developing an idea” where he highlighted that ideas for scientific writing  are apparent in our everyday work, conversation with colleagues or strange places. Since ideas are everywhere, the first step is to document them for future reference and exploration.  In that regard, a notebook shall be a researcher’s constant companion. These ideas can then further explored through research and discussions with colleagues and seniors to refine it further.
















The next segment of the presentation was on “Manuscript writing.” The success of manuscriptwriting hinges of careful planning and implementation. In planning a manuscript, it is essential to draft each section of the investigation in different headings and subheadings. The headings and subheading are translated into goals.  These goals will give the research milestone to pursue and achieve in a given timeline. Attainment of the milestones will result in satisfactory manuscript.Prof Morris weighed in with his contribution by pointing out that writing is the difficult aspect of a research and getting started is the hardest part. His advice was that it is easy to start with the results and methods section followed by the discussion, conclusion, introduction, references and title, leaving the abstract until last.








“Importance of Journal Selection & Submission.” Selecting the best target or right fit journal for your research is a critical step. It can save you considerable time and effort by avoiding rejection. It will help other researchers in your field to find your work and aid in improving visibility. Prof. Howard Morris advised that authors should state in the cover letter that is included with the manuscript what the article is all about and why it should be added in the journal of interest.








Omolara Popoola (Core Member, IFCC-TFYS) led the Introduction to IFCC-Task Force for Young Scientists’ Session with a welcome address on behalf of the IFCC-TFYS Chair, Dr. Pradeep Kumar Dabla. She then gave a presentation on the Vision and Activities of IFCC-TFYS,which captivated the audience. The young scientists were particularly interested in the exchange program and how they could be involved in the future IFCC events.
















Itai Chitungo gave the closing where he challenged the YS of Zimbabwe to start planning and organizing a strong contingent to attend WORLDLAB in Durban next year by getting their projects started for submission of posters and raising funds to hire a bus to take the contingent to Durban.

“WASPaLM  - IFCC TF YS Joint Session, CANCUN 2015”

18th November 2015, 8.00AM-11.00AM

Young Specialists in Lab Medicine of the Future – Preparing Together








WASPaLM in conjunction with Mexican Federation of Clinical Pathology and the Federation of Pathology of Mexico organised the XXVIII World Congress WASPaLM-2015 from 18to 21 November 2015 in Cancun. Cancun is a beautiful city located on the Caribbean Sea in south eastern Mexico near the center of the Mayan Civilisation.








This joint session of WASPaLM and IFCC was conducted on 18 November 2015 as a clinical pathology course (CPC9). The goal of the session was to bring young scientists from both sides of the Atlantic together on the same platform for discussion, networking and exchange of ideas in the rapidly changing world of healthcare; both in terms of technology and economic pressures.Medical tests impact patient health by influencing clinical management and decisions. Thus, in addition to their role in diagnosis, clinical laboratories are now increasingly becoming involved in assisting physicians make therapeutic decisions. Laboratories therefore may need to develop different implementation strategies for their hospitals, general practitioners or other clinician clients to increase awareness, thus facilitating adherence of recommendations through acceptance and adoption designs.








TF YS 2015 Cancun








Persons in the center, from left to right:
Dr Michael Oellerich (Former President WASPaLM), Dr Rosa Sierra-Amor (EB-IFCC), Prof Maurizio Ferrari (President IFCC), Dr Lai-Meng Looi (President WASPaLM), Dr. Tjin-Shing Jap (Organizing Committee ASCPaLM 2016), Dr Pradeep Kumar Dabla (Chair IFCC-TFYS)








The session was opened with welcome addresses by Dr Lai Meng Looi, President of WASPaLM, and Dr Maurizio Ferrari, President of IFCC, coordinated by Dr Rosa Sierra-Amor, EB-IFCC. These were followed by a short introduction to the IFCC-Task Force on Young Scientists (TFYS) by Dr Pradeep Kumar Dabla, Chair IFCC-TFYS. The first talk of the session was given by Dr Michael Oellerich, Director for Europe, WASPaLM, titled “Future of Laboratory Medicine- Challenges & Opportunities”. He discussed the major current forces driving clinical laboratory organization and the opportunities of personalized diagnostics. He concluded that despite all challenges we should be optimistic because the new technologies and advances in Molecular Diagnostics provide an environment in which Laboratory Medicine has a chance to grow as an academic profession. The next talk was given by Dr Roberto Ruiz-Cordero, a young WASPaLM scientist doing a fellowship at Anderson Cancer Center, USA. The title of his talk was “Healthcare & Medical Laboratory- State of Major Transformations” where he summarized the financing, work environment and key delivery issues and how to tackle them. The third talk was given by Dr Pradeep Kumar Dabla, Chair IFCC-TFYS, entitled “Interface Linking Laboratory Medicine & Clinical Medicine - Two sides of same coin”. He emphasized that the role of the laboratory in patient management should be improved by adding value to laboratory tests through the use of appropriate test requests and utilisation that meet changing testing needs. He explained that the laboratory-clinical interface is of fundamental importance to ensure that the patient is given high quality care. Lastly Dr José Francisco Muñoz-Valle, Professor at the Universidad de Guadalajara, discussed “Education & Training Programmes Opportunities – Preparing Lab work force” in which he gave a clear view of the requirements and different educational programmes available in different parts of Mexico for young laboratory scientists.








The meeting ended with a vote of thanks from Dr Rosa Sierra-Amor and the commitment by Senior Leaders of both societies to again conduct such joint educational and networking activities in the near future.








The TFYS would like to thank all Senior Members of WASPaLM, IFCC and the participants for their attendance and support. The session was successful in contributing to the understanding of the current trends inLaboratory Medicine and in allowing young scientists to be aware of future challenges and opportunities.
