IUSTI World + European Congress

June 27, 2018 - June 30, 2018

Don’t miss out our Satellite Symposium

Visit us at Booth #24

This year combines the World and Europe IUSTI congress into one and it is looking to be a very exciting and relevant event. The congress will be hosted in Trinity College Dublin, running under the theme of “The Appliance of Science” – emphasising the great practical advances that science has brought to our day-to-day clinical practice with patients, and to public health.

The programme will tackle newly emerging issues in the STI field, including:

  • the rise of Syphilis and other STIs
  • confronting Gonococcal Resistance
  • addressing Sexual Health and Quality Sex in STI practice
  • how STI practice can be improved through Programme Science

Mark your calendars for the SpeeDx Satellite Symposium and be sure to visit us at Booth #24 to talk about your Molecular Diagnostic needs.
