ERNDIM 2017 Workshop and participant meeting
21st and 22nd November 2017, Manchester, UK

The annual ERNDIM participant meeting, including the workshops of the five diagnostic proficiency testing schemes is usually held at the annual symposium of the SSIEM. This year there will be no SSIEM meeting and we expect that not very many ERNDIM participants will be able to attend the ICIEM meeting in Rio de Janeiro. Therefore the ERNDIM Board decided to hold a separate one and a half day meeting to include the DPT discussions and scientific workshops. This will be similar to the very successful meeting we held in Basel in 2009.

The meeting will take place November 21st and 22nd, 2017 in Manchester. The scientific programme of Nov 21st, contains a session on Novel diagnostic approaches and treatment of Lysosomal Storage Diseases. On Nov 21st also the Diagnostic Proficiency Testing schemes meetings will be held and we will organise a social dinner. On Nov 22nd workshops on lysomal enzyme testing, neurotransmitters in CSF, acylcarnitines in DBS and organic acids will be organised as well as a session on current and future developments in Biochemical Genetics testing and external quality assurance.

A detailed scientific programme, venue and fees will be announced soon by email and on the ERNDIM website.
