Wallace H Coulter Lectureship Award

The Wallace H. Coulter Lectureship Award recognizes an outstanding individual who has demonstrated a lifetime commitment to, and made important contributions that have had a significant impact on education, practice and/or research in laboratory medicine or patient care. 

This award honors Wallace H. Coulter, founder of Coulter Corporation and inventor of the Coulter Principle, a simple but elegant innovation that revolutionized hematology and the practice of laboratory medicine, pioneered the field of flow cytometry and defined particle characterization. AACC's most prestigious award—presented annually at the 68th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo—commemorates Wallace Coulter's outstanding contributions to diagnostics and his championship of research and innovation. It is fitting that his legacy will be celebrated with lectures by renowned leaders in healthcare.

The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation generously supports The Wallace H. Coulter Lectureship Award, which includes a commemorative plaque and $10,000 honorarium.
