These were selected from 16 submitted extended abstracts by a Nordic prize committee consisting of several
professors in clinical biochemistry from the Nordic countries.
Invited speakers for most symposia are also ready, while we still await contributions into symposia
from submitted abstracts (deadline March 13, 2006). The symposia are being organised by the fol-
lowing chairpersons, who in many cases will contribute toward the programme themselves:
Kim Dalhoff

Therapeutic drug management
Helle Riis Angelo
(Copenhagen, Denmark)
Marianne Benn
(Copenhagen, Denmark)
Lipids, lipoproteins and apolipoproteins
Göran Walldius
(Stockholm, Sweden)

Ingemar Björkhem
(Huddinge, Sweden)
Oxysterols: basic research to diagnostic tests
Herman Adlercreutz
(Helsinki, Finland)
Stig E Bojesen
(Copenhagen, Denmark)
Genetic epidemiology
XXX Nordic Congress in Clinical Chemistry,
