The Laboratory SIG will incorporate both benign and malignant laboratory haematology. This group will demonstrate multi-professional and multidisciplinary collaboration, including clinical and biomedical scientists (involved in cytogenetics, genomic medicine, immunophenotyping, general laboratory haematology) as well as medical professionals (histopathologists interested in haematopathology).

The group will focus on general laboratory haematology, haematological malignancy diagnostics and the investigation of constitutional haematological disorders in the UK. These will continue to be a growth area over the next few decades, particularly with the advent of genomic and personalised medicine. Within the SIG, we will have separate sub-speciality workstreams to allow professionals to coalesce around areas of their particular interest, such as HMDS or red cell haematology.

These workstreams will operate and report through the SIG organising committee.
