About:

Clinical Chemistry is pleased to partake in the celebration of the IYC2011 by publishing during the year several articles and new features prepared by inspiring scientists and award-winning writers that highlight various aspects of our profession. Some of these articles will be prepared in collaboration with sister institutions and entities, such as the Chemical Heritage Foundation, the École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles in Paris, and the AACC History Division. All of our IYC2011 activities will be disseminated in multiple ways to the scientific and general communities and made available to everyone in an effort to enhance the visibility of chemistry and celebrate our profession. Below is a list of some of the planned activities. All the articles and features listed below will be published in the Clinical Chemist section of Clinical Chemistry. Podcasts related to these features will be available at http://www.clinchem.org.
