Research on Digital Health, Alzheimer's, Ebola Draws Nearly 20,000 Attendees to 2014 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo
Date:7/31/2014

CHICAGO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 20,000 medical professionals and healthcare leaders gathered for AACC's 65th Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago from July 27–31. The meeting featured never-before-seen breakthroughs in diagnostic research and technology that will advance medicine and get patients the treatment they need.

As of Wednesday, July 30, more than 19,500 attendees had registered for the 2014 AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo, with more than 10,000 of these attendees coming for the scientific sessions. More registrants are expected today, the last day of the meeting.  

Highlights of the conference program included five plenary talks presented by distinguished experts on subjects ranging from digital health to an early blood test for Alzheimer's. Eric Topol, MD, winner of AACC's  2014 Wallace H. Coulter Lectureship Award and director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute, gave the opening keynote on how mobile health technology is empowering patients with their own health data—collected by smartphones and other mobile health apps—and allowing them to take a more active role in making their own healthcare decisions.

Monday's plenary speaker Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, co-author of Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think, offered real world examples illustrating the predictive power of big data and how it is improving patient care by enabling researchers to analyze thousands of medical data points at once rather than having to limit their focus to a single question. Tuesday's plenary with Mayo Clinic researcher Piero Rinaldo, MD, PhD, built on this concept by exploring how big data can help to avoid false positives in newborn screening and prevent infants from receiving unnecessary or even
