of the
German Society of Newborn Screening

Newborn Screening – Review – Insights – Outlook

15th – 16th of June 2018
Vienna

Detailed informations will follow soon.

Welcome

Dear Guests,
dear Colleagues,

we are pleased to invite you to the 25 th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Newborn Screening (DGNS). Noteworthy, for the first time this meeting will take place outside of Germany – in Vienna. Thus we hope that beyond an interesting scientific program we can offer a nice cultural ambience. Moreover, we would like to take advantage of the location Vienna to foster contact and exchange to our neighboring countries. Following the theme “review – insights – outlook”, the program will highlight achievements, focus on the present problem of recalls and false positive results, and view into the future with the emphasis on SCID and other not yet screened conditions.

We hope you will join us and take part in the scientific program by submitting abstracts on these or related topics.

We are looking forward to meeting you and a fruitful exchange of opinions and experience.

With best regards

Vassiliki Konstantopoulou
Maximilian Zeyda

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

wir freuen uns, Sie zur 25. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Neugeborenenscreening (DGNS) 2018 einladen zu dürfen. Als Besonderheit findet diese Tagung erstmalig außerhalb Deutschlands, nämlich in Wien statt. Somit hoffen wir, neben einem wissenschaftlich interessanten Programm auch ein kulturell interessantes Ambiente bieten zu können. Darüber hinaus wollen wir den Ort Wien nutzen, um Kontakt und Austausch mit unseren Nachbarländern herzustellen bzw. zu erweitern. Unter dem Motto „Rückblick – Einblick – Ausblick“ wollen wir im Programm auf Errungenschaften eingehen, um uns danach vertieft der aktuellen Problematik von Recalls und falsch positiven Ergebnissen zu widmen und schließlich mit dem Schwerpunkt „SCID und andere noch nicht gescreente Konditionen“ in die Zukunft zu blicken.

Wir hoffen auf Ihre Teilnahme und eine rege Beteiligung am wissenschaftlichen Programm durch Einsendung von Abstracts zu diesen oder verwandten Themen.

Wir freuen uns, Sie begrüßen zu dürfen und auf einen fruchtbaren Meinungs- und Erfahrungsaustausch.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Vassiliki Konstantopoulou
Maximilian Zeyda
