03/08/2021

Dr. Katherina Psarra, eNews Editor, says: "COVID-19 is here again at the beginning of my editorial but this time for a different reason. The IFCC Virtual Conference on COVID-19 was really successful and gave us pride and hope. Prof Adeli is presenting a summary of this success in his introductory message. In this issue, we have the opportunity to learn about the actions taken by the new IFCC Task Forces on Newborn Screening and for Corporate Members, the IFCC Working Group on Artificial Intelligence and Genomic Diagnostics. We also have a very interesting report of the survey about the IFCC webinars Live Series Fall 2020. Unfortunately, there is again an obituary, a farewell to a well-known Swedish Clinical Chemist, Prof. Nils Trydin. You will see there an incredible, beautiful photo. What makes us, the IFCC people, proud is that when we are reminded of the lives of the late IFCC officers, we take a glimpse of some really rich and wonderful lives. All these people are characterized by huge work in the field of Laboratory Medicine, but at the same time, they are full of surprises. They are scholars in many other areas; they are open to knowledge, art, and life. The group work, the collaboration are again celebrated in the Univants awards. Finally, don’t forget to read about the conferences, webinars from all over the world. Reports and descriptions are coming again. They may be virtual, but they obviously offer a lot to a lot more people. With the hope of meeting you in person soon...
