With a membership of nearly 9,000, the international scientific and medical society works to advance the practice and profession of clinical laboratory science and its application to health care. AACC is best known for the journal Clinical Chemistry, the most cited in the field, and for its annual meeting, the world’s largest lab medicine conference with about 17,000-19,000 registrants from more than 100 countries.
