Distinguished Abstracts

In addition to recognizing major contributions to laboratory medicine through the the Academy awards, the Academy also recognizes exceptional scientific abstracts in the field. Each year, a group of Academy fellows reviews the abstracts submitted to the the Association for Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine (formerly AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo and selects several for distinction.

Academy of Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine Designation
