ACB/AACC Transactlantic Award Lecture

The American Association for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (AACC) Transatlantic Lecture was inaugurated in 1998 when the ACB National Meeting was held in Glasgow. This was the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the AACC. The procedure for selecting the AACC Transatlantic Lecture has evolved over this time.

The speaker’s expenses will cover travel (economy) plus registration and accommodation for the full meeting.

  • The proposed speaker is selected by the Scientific Programme Organising Committee for the National Meeting at which the lecture will be presented. The AACC is then consulted through its President about the person selected.
  • The major qualification for the speaker is that he or she is a distinguished, leading clinical scientist from the American Continent. The person will be able to deliver a plenary lecture on a subject usually relevant to one of the themes of the conference.
  • The person will be able to deliver a plenary lecture on a subject usually relevant to one of the themes of the conference.
  • The lecturer does not need to be a Member of AACC nor only be resident in the USA.
  • The proposed speaker is selected by the Association’s Executive and the scientific programme lead of the meeting at which the lecture will be presented.

Sponsorship by individual Corporate Members will be invited as part of the overall Annual National Meeting (Focus) sponsorship package from 2011 onwards. The Award is presented by a representative of the sponsoring company.
