Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the XXXIIIrd WASPaLM World Congress and the XXIVth National Congress of Clinical Biochemistry will be held in Granada Congress Center, Antalya Turkiye, between 16 and 20 of October 2024.

The World Association of Societies of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (WASPaLM) has a mission to improve health worldwide by promoting the education and practice of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. The Turkish Society of Clinical Biochemistry (TSCB), which became a member of WASPaLM in 1998, aims to improve the quality of laboratory services, which constitute a substantial part of the health services provided to the public by prioritizing education, also to serve the development of Clinical Biochemistry in Turkey and to shape the future of this medical specialty.

We are proud and excited to organize the World Congress in Turkiye once again after the XXIIIrd WASPaLM World Congress in 2005 in Istanbul.

Antalya, the beautiful city on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, is well known for its natural and cultural beauty, especially for historical places and the ruins of ancient cities.

The World Congress theme is “Laboratory Medicine: Creating Value for Patients”. The contribution of laboratory medicine to patient care will be discussed in the scientific program by invited expert speakers from both laboratory medicine and clinical medicine. The XXXIIIrd WASPaLM World Congress will include plenary sessions and symposiums. The scientific contributions of WASPaLM Constituent Societies are welcome. Undoubtedly, your oral and poster presentations will contribute to the scientific content of the World Congress.

We will be pleased to see you at the XXXIIIrd WASPaLM World Congress and XXIVth National Congress of Clinical Biochemistry.

I look forward to welcoming you all in Antalya, 16-20 October 2024.
