IFCC-TFYS Webinar Series-Biochemical Genetics in Functional Diagnosis and Monitoring of Inborn Errors of Metabolism
Monday, November 4th, 2019- 6:00 a.m. PST, USA
The IFCC Task Force Young Scientists would like to invite you to our ninth educational webinar for scientists and laboratorians, brought to you by the IFCC Task Force Young Scientists. This educational program focuses on the biochemical genetics in diagnosis and monitoring of inborn errors of metabolism.Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are a large and heterogeneous group of genetic diseases. In most of these conditions, the presence of variants in specific genes leads to enzyme deficiencies that affect a particular metabolic step. For the majority of IEM, early diagnosis prevents the onset of severe clinical symptoms, thus reducing morbidity and mortality. This webinar will help us to understand better the different lab diagnostic approaches and latest techniques available.
