Register Free for ACS Annual Meeting May 13-14


A message from the President

Welcome to the website of the Association of Clinical Scientists. The Association has a long and distinguished history of over 70 years providing a forum for clinical scientists from many disciplines to interact and share research and related topics. The Association of Clinical Scientists publishes a highly regarded, PubMed indexed journal, Annals of Clinical and Laboratory Science, that is currently in its 50th year of publication. Highly referenced manuscripts are published in 6 issues of the journal per year with a wide variety of research interests regarding clinical, translational, and basic science fields in laboratory medicine and anatomic pathology. ACS also publishes the Clinical Science Trumpet newsletter on the ACS website three times per year to inform the membership of upcoming events and items of importance.

Typically, an in-person Annual Meeting is held yearly in May at various sites. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting that was scheduled for May of 2021 in Louisville was cancelled. However, we are pleased to announce that we will be conducting a virtual Annual Meeting over two ½ days on Thursday and Friday, May 13 and 14. The program features six outstanding speakers, three on our theme of Emerging Technologies in Clinical Laboratory Medicine on Thursday and three on the theme of COVID-19 Surveillance in Public Health on Friday. Other features of the program include a session of short presentations by young scientists, presentation of the Association’s annual awards, the Association’s annual Business Meeting, and the opportunity to earn CME credits. Details can be viewed elsewhere on this website. We are planning to hold an in-person meeting in May of 2022 in Louisville (hybrid with on-line).

The Association prides itself on the level of collegiality, sharing of research and ideas, and personal interaction that is not found in most societies. The Association hosts many committees from Athletics, Music and Arts, and Young Fellows Section Oversight just to name a few, as well as the Scientific Sections and Publications. We cordially invite your participation in these committees. If you are not already a member, please consider joining to take advantage of all the benefits the Association has to offer.
