Lab-Surfing is a Laboratory professional social media designed and created in order to fulfill the unattended needs of Young Scientists (YS). Results from a global survey showed communication and exchange programme deficits for young scientists. During the current era of continuously evolving professions with upcoming technologies and methods, exchange programme and communication proved to be essential for young laboratorians. Information and communication technologies (ICT´s) are an easy and efficient way to connect people from all around the globe. Thus, willing to address these needs the IFCC-TFYS came with the idea of creating a professional social media exclusively for Young Laboratory Medicine Scientists, and named it as Lab Surfing.
In order to expand and develop the YS online group, we have created a professional social media system (website) where YS can help each other to grow and expand their horizons in our profession. Please examine and then promote the Lab Surfing to members, and especially YS, in your society or company.
