The 2017 AACC Annual Meeting
held in San Diego, CA was a blast!
A record number of 21,300 attendees of primarily laboratory medicine professionals and healthcare leaders came to the meeting to explore cutting edge research and emerging Public Health topics. Besides our own poster presentations, the conference highlights included talks from Dr. Doudna and her breakthrough research on CRISPR technology, the novel gene editing tool that may be used to correct genetic disorders. We greatly enjoyed the panel discussion from the Qualcom Tri-corder XPrize award winners and finalist. It was great to see so many recent advancements of medical technology first hand and, of course, to present our own research!
