The 2018 EQALM symposium and General Assembly was held in Zagreb, Croatia, in October 2018.
"The Adam Uldall lecture will be given by Greg Miller (USA) with the following title: Future challenges in EQA, with special emphasis on harmonization and commutability. Greg Miller is a Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and his professional interests and research has focused on standardization and harmonization of laboratory results, quality control and external quality assessment/proficiency testing. His current professional activities include: Associate Editor of the journal Clinical Chemistry, Chair of the IFCC Working Group for Commutability, Chair of the Harmonization Oversight Group of the International Consortium for Harmonization of Clinical Laboratory Tests, Chair of the Laboratory Working Group of the National Kidney Disease Education Program, a member of the US delegation to ISO Technical Committee 212 for Clinical Laboratory Testing and In Vitro Diagnostic Test Systems, and several other work groups for clinical laboratory standards. He is a past-president of the AACC and the CLSI.
As a person who has spent much of his career pursuing better quality across Laboratory Medicine, the EQALM Executive Board find Professor Miller a worthy receiver of the Adam Uldall Award."
