Focus 2008, The Association for Clinical Biochemistry. Birmingham ICC from 18 - 20 May 2008

Welcome to BirminghamMike Hallworth, Chair Focus 2008

"Only connect!" Nearly 100 years after Howard's End, EM Forster's epigram has acquired a significance he could not have anticipated. The linkage of information, ideas, people and disciplines has become fundamental to scientific progress in the 21st Century, and - even in the electronic age - there is still no substitute for bringing people together for simultaneous learning, sharing, discussion and networking.

The scientific and social programms and the commercial exhibition at Focus 2008 have been designed to give you the chance to find out what you need to know, meet the people you need to meet - and to be stimulated by new ideas, new insights, new contacts and new connections. As you'll see from what follows, we have cutting-edge science and clinical applications, best practice for today and a glimpse of tomorrow - something for everyone in Laboratory Medicine, as well as 2008's major UK clinical science exhibition.

I very much look forward to seeing you in Birmingham in May.

Make sure you don't miss your connection!

Mike Hallworth

Chairman, Focus 2008
