The 2020 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo held by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (Washington, DC, USA) offered five days from December 13-17 packed with opportunities to learn about current and emerging science on a virtual platform.

The 2020 AACC virtual meeting AACC brought the latest interactive technology for all educational sessions plus innovative networking opportunities. Attendees have access to all scientific and plenary sessions, on-demand, through January 18, 2021. With more than 200 scientific sessions, the breadth of clinical laboratory science education was robust and prepared attendees for what’s ahead in the lab. A key focus this year was on the latest SARS-CoV-2 testing topics, including seven late-breaking special sessions. Plenary sessions included discussions on using artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve patient outcomes, new therapies for cancer, creating cross-functional diagnostic management teams, and accelerating health research and medical breakthroughs through the use of precision medicine.

At the virtual AACC Clinical Lab Expo, more than 150 exhibitors filled the digital floor with displays and vital information about the latest diagnostic technology, including but not limited to SARS-CoV-2 testing, mobile health, molecular diagnostics, mass spectrometry, point-of-care, and automation. Attendees also had the opportunity to win prizes while engaging with exhibitors to learn about the latest technologies and solutions for their lab. The event also provided the opportunity to connect with colleagues and world experts at an industry talk or during one of the many planned social events. The virtual meeting platform’s matchmaking technology, powered by artificial intelligence software, recommended exhibitors and other attendees to connect with based on their self-identified professional goals and interests. The attendees then reached out to these individuals through the virtual platform to schedule meetings with them during the Clinical Lab Expo.
