This is the 11th European Meeting on Molecular Diagnostics (EMMD), devoted to all aspects of molecular diagnostics in human disease and pathology. The EMMD is organised every two years in the Netherlands. These meetings are a continuation of the former Benelux- and European meetings on PCR diagnostics. However the scope of the meeting has expanded to include other amplification techniques, general probe technology and applications in wide diversity of laboratory disciplines i.e. Clinical Microbiology, Virology, Pathology, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Genetics, Pharmacogenetics, Hematology and Oncology. The emphasis of this multi-disciplinary meeting is on novel molecular technologies and innovative applications in the diagnosis, monitoring and screening of human diseases. Presentations will consist of invited-lectures by internationally renowned experts in combination with selected abstract presentations. Poster sessions and industrial exhibits will be an integrated part of the meeting. In conjunction with the meeting a number of business meetings of participating societies and exhibitors will be organised. The sponsoring companies are enabled to organise specific training and other activities before and after the meeting. EMMD is well known for informal and open atmosphere in combination with high-level presentations and exchange of scientific progress. The renowned Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, located directly at the North Sea beach, is the ideal venue to meet these achievements. Timely registration will avoid disappointment as the number of participants is restricted.
