Conference Program

From Plenary Sessions featuring world-renowned scientists to intimate Roundtable sessions geared for lively discussion on hot topics, the 2022 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo offers something for everyone in laboratory medicine.

More than 250 educational sessions in a variety of settings will give you the knowledge you need to advance professionally and develop adaptive solutions for today's complex, challenging healthcare environment.

The full conference program will be available in the spring of 2022, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of a couple exciting sessions that the meeting will include:

Sunday Plenary Session

Dr. George ChurchSunday, July 24
2022 Wallace H. Coulter Lectureship Award

George M. Church, PhD
Founding Core Faculty & Lead, Synthetic Biology Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School
Professor of Health Sciences and Technology, Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology

George Church, PhD, is professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, a founding member of the Wyss Institute, and director of, the world’s only open-access information on human genomic, environmental, and trait data. Dr. Church is known for pioneering the fields of personal genomics and synthetic biology. He developed the first methods for the first genome sequence and dramatic cost reductions since then (down from $3 billion to $600), contributing to nearly all next-generation sequencing methods and companies. His team invented CRISPR for human stem cell genome editing and other synthetic biology technologies and applications—including new ways to create organs for transplantation, gene therapies for aging reversal, and gene drives to eliminate Lyme disease and malaria. 

Dr. Church is director of the IARPA and NIH BRAIN Projects and the National Institutes of Health Center for Excellence in Genomic Science. He has co-authored more than 500 papers and 130 patent publications, and one book, “Regenesis.” His honors include Franklin Bower Laureate for Achievement in Science, the Time 100, and election to the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering. 

AACC Disruptive Technology Award Competition

Monday, July 25

At this special session, three diagnostic developers will present data on their innovative technologies. A panel of expert judges will then evaluate all presented testing solutions based on feasibility and performance, and the audience will also vote for their favorite technology.

Learn more about how you can apply for the chance to present at this session.
