AACC2019 begins on Sunday evening with an opening plenary session featuring Harvard Medical School’s Dr. David Walt. He’ll describe how biomarker discovery is performed today and discuss how attendees can compress the time frame from discovery to clinical impact. Also on the agenda:

Get in the zone. New for 2019, the AACC Innovation Zone brings unique, curated content to the AACC Clinical Lab Expo. It will feature displays and presentations from AACC Disruptive Technology Award semifinalists, a Clinical Lab Expo Product Showcase interactive experience, and brief talks on diagnostic innovations presented by AACC’s flagship magazine, Clinical Laboratory News.

Budget-conscious learning. AACC University features 15 low-cost sessions on Sunday that people can attend without paying the full meeting registration fee. Participants may choose from half-day and full-day sessions. As a bonus, those enrolled in  an AACC University course are also invited to attend that day’s plenary session, as well as the AACC Opening Mixer and Division Networking Event.

Dive deeper. After their presentations, plenary speakers and other invited experts participate in Meet the Experts sessions. These informal, in-depth conversations are an hour long, and questions and free-form dialogue are highly encouraged. Attendance is limited to 75 people.
