Improving patient outcomes by overcoming the challenges
of implementing high value tests in the clinical lab


MSACL 2023

Monterey, CA April 3-6

Call for Practical Training Proposals (1h)

Submit Practical Training Proposal

The DEADLINE for proposals is December 1.

MSACL is soliciting proposals for Practical Training sessions to be held at MSACL 2023 to cover topics relevant to the clinical analysis field.

MSACL's mission is to overcome the challenges of implementing high value tests in the clinical lab. The MSACL 2023 conference will showcase cutting edge science, but also identify and address bottlenecks in the field that are impeding the conversion of basic science discoveries into clinically useful applications.

MSACL 2023 will be held in Monterey CA on April 3-6, 2023.

The goal of the MSACL Practical Training track is to provide down-to-earth advice from those with extensive or specific hands-on expertise to less experienced users in diagnostic laboratories. Although talking about chromatography and mass spectrometry theory is important, as many people are using the technique with minimal theoretical background, we have found that spicing small doses of theory with large amounts of tasty real world case examples from your own practice is the most effective teaching mode for this track. These are tutorial sessions, not presentations of your research. We encourage interactive formats whenever feasible.

Presentations should be free of commercial bias and be vendor neutral (no branding, no promotion or marketing). This track is NOT an alternative to scheduling a vendor workshop.

The track started out for beginners, but as the MSACL community has evolved, we have found that intermediate topics now have the best attendance.

The session chair should submit the proposal and may choose be the only speaker. If the session chair would like to recruit additional presenters, the maximum number of speakers is three. Traditionally, the hour has been divided into three, 20 min sessions, but this format is not mandatory.

Deadline for Submission: December 1, 2022

Session Dates: April 5-6, 2023
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California

Attendance is open and free for all conference registrants on a first-come basis, and will occur during parallel scientific sessions. Attendance is expected to range from 20 - 60 people.

Proposal Guidelines: Title, 150 word summary and 3 take home pearls that attendees should be able to apply to their practice after returning to their laboratories.
