The event was graced by the presence of Director of Health Department, Kedah State Datuk Dr Norhizan Ismail. He in his speech told that in the last decade, our understanding of the somatic cancer genome has been greatly advanced through gene discovery studies. It has a significant clinical impact in the diagnosis of acute leukaemias and other haematological malignancies defined by recurrent somatic alterations and also in the development of more precise prognostic schema. Most importantly, these studies have identified disease alleles that have guided the use of molecularly targeted therapy.
This is the second morphology workshop series organised by Members of Malaysian Laboratory Haematology Society (MMLHS). Meanwhile, Prof Dr Narazah Mohd Yusoff, President of MMLHS in her speech appreciate all the members and participants for the participation and supporting the event. She hopes more new members will join the society so that the society can organize more activities in the future and at the same time expand the horizon of MMLHS.
“We would like to express our utmost appreciation to all invited speakers for accepting our invitation to share their wealth of expertise in this workshop, not forgetting our sponsors who have supported this event without which this event would not have been possible. “
“Last but not least, my utmost gratitude to the organizing committee for the excellent efforts rendered in organizing this workshop. It is always a pleasure and also an achievement to see members working closely together coming from different fraternities, from both government and private industries. I hope that this collaboration will sustain and continue in future activities.” she said in her opening speech in Bayview Hotel Langkawi.
