Area9 Lyceum will participate in the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held December 13-17, 2020, joining an online community to share the latest developments in scientific education. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the world’s leading adaptive learning program for laboratory medicine, based on Area9’s adaptive platform.

The AACC Learning Lab for Laboratory Medicine on the NEJM Knowledge+ platform has been used by more than 100,000 healthcare professionals worldwide. Usage has increased significantly during the Covid-19 pandemic, given the importance of laboratory medicine to respond to the crisis. Free courses on the platform have been offered since March 2020.

“It's been an eye-opener how much global traction for trusted knowledge, in particular from lab professionals from Asia, we saw during the beginning of the pandemic. Our editorial and author team reacted swiftly in developing free resources to allow for efficient knowledge dissemination, and I thank the team", says Nader Rifai, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of the Learning Lab; Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School; Director of Clinical Chemistry, Boston Children’s Hospital; and Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Chemistry.
