Spotlight on Science

Abstracts selected by the Annual Meeting Organizing Committee with assistance from the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry for their quality and the importance of their research in one of three topic areas will be presented in dynamic sessions held on three consecutive afternoons. In each 15-minute presentation and 5-minute question-and-answer session, attendees will hear the best of cutting-edge research, a hallmark of the AACC Annual Meeting.
