Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

It is our great honour and pleasure to invite you to participate in the 14th Asia–Pacific  Federation for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine Congress in Taiwan in 2016. It is the first time such a great event to be hosted by the Chinese Association for Clinical Biochemistry (CACB) in Taiwan.

The organizing committee will arrange scientific and social activities to enrich our knowledge, skills and networks. We also hope that you will enjoy Taiwan which is well known as Formosa, the beautiful island, an interesting place with a wide array of tourism and ecological resources, a diversity of traditional folk customs, a rich culture, modern arts, fantastic food, and modern technology.

We have more than 200 mountains that soar above 3,000 meters in height, and our unique geology and topography have created countless arresting landscapes and alluring coastal scenes. We also have an unparalleled ecological diversity and a huge number of plant and animal species concentrated in a relatively small place. We have some of the friendliest people in the world, 24-hour bookstores and convenient stores, and bustling night markets. Taiwan is also a gourmet's paradise, with the finest of Chinese cuisine, the booming development of foreign restaurants, and unique dining opportunities in establishments serving local Taiwanese snacks, Hakka dishes, aborigine banquets, and night-market foods, as well as exquisite international dining in five-star hotels. Whatever your preference and budget, Taiwan will easily satisfy your taste buds. We also have the advantage of convenient transportation and an excellent travel environment that you will want to enjoy again and again.

On behalf of the organizer of the APFCB Congress 2016, I welcome you to visit our Beautiful Island.

Woei-horng Fang, Ph.D.
President, CACB
Chairman, Organizing Committee

Dear Friends,

I would like to invite you to attend the 14th APFCB Congress to be held in Taipei from 26th till 29th November 2016. The theme of the congress is "Advancing laboratory medicine for better patient care". This promises to be an excellent congress with a nice blend of cutting-edge science, a good corporate exhibition and excellent opportunities for participants to network with each other during the main congress and social events.

I would like to thank the Congress Organising Committee under the chairmanship of Professor Woei-Horng Fang for doing an excellent job in the preparation of the 14th APFCB Congress. IFCC, WASPaLM, EFLM, AACC, NACCCA and APFCB member societies are sponsoring symposia and workshops at the 14th APFCB Congress and I would like to express my sincere thanks to these organisations. A vote of thanks also to the diagnostic companies, our knowledge partners, for supporting our congress.

For the first time, the APFCB is holding a Young Scientists Competition. Five short-listed young scientists (under 40 years of age on 26th November 2016), based on their submitted abstracts, will receive an APFCB-Siemens Travel Award of SGD 2,000 to attend the APFCB Congress in Taipei. Registration fees will be waived for these five young scientists who will have an oral presentation at the APFCB Congress in Taipei. There will be a first prize of SGD 1,000 and a second prize of SGD 500, both sponsored by Siemens.

I look forward to seeing you at the 14th APFCB Congress.

Dr Leslie Lai
President, APFCB
