37th Annual NRL Symposium on Infectious Diseases Testing

NRL is proud to announce that the 37th Annual NRL Symposium on Infectious Diseases Testing will be held from 12-14 October at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne this year.

The Symposium provides an opportunity for medical scientists, test kit manufacturers, regulators, clinicians and associated industry personnel to come together and discuss issues and challenges occurring in the world of infectious diseases testing. This meeting aims to promote the sharing of information, ideas and collaborations between like-minded individuals in an informal environment. NRL will offer a program comprised of invited speakers, authors of successful abstract submissions and industry sponsored presentations. There will also be social activities on offer for networking with peers and meeting new colleagues.

This symposium presents a wonderful educational opportunity for experienced scientists that have been in the industry for many years as well as those that are new to the profession.  As a commitment to fostering the engagement of recent graduates, NRL will offer a New Scientist Award to the author of the best presentation delivered at the Symposium. A discounted registration fee will also be available for any new scientist (working in the field for less than 5 years) wishing to attend the meeting.

We encourage all scientists to contribute to the 2020 scientific program and as such, discounted registration rates will apply to all authors of accepted abstracts which can be submitted for either an oral or poster presentation.  

We look forward to your attendance at this year’s Symposium.
