Clinical laboratory education today and tomorrow

The different professions within laboratory medicine complement each other. The education programs are under development and revision. The future laboratory medicine will be dynamic with new biomarkers and techniques. The session will illustrate the situation within the Nordic countries.

Future use of cancer biomarkers

Our knowledge of how cancer develops and evolves into stable tissue has recently been rewritten. In addition, several cancer biomarkers are now used for screening and to guide personalised treatment. This session will give an overview of our new vistas in cancer biology and provide examples of future cancer biomarkers that will aid in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer

Chairs: Julia Asp and Anne Ricksten

Johan Frederik Berg Arendt, Denmark

Room: F3

Biomarkers of kidney disease

How to estimate kidney function has been debated under decades. Recently novel kidney function biomarkers have been found, ways to standardise measurement of cystatin C have been presented and new better formulas for both creatinine- and cystatin C-based estimations of GFR have been developed. This sessionwill discuss how kidney function should be measured. In addition, novel methods for measurement of carbohydrate urin markers and how cardiac markers might be affected by kidney function will be discussed.
Chairs: Ola Hammarsten and Anders Larson

10:15 - 10:45 Biomarkers of Kidney Disease (411)
