ASCP 2021 Live in Boston + Virtual, October 27-29

One Meeting, Two Ways to Attend

Join colleagues in-person in Boston or connect virtually from anywhere in the world.

A Global Community, United

Last September, more than 6,000 members of the laboratory team came together for an all-virtual experience that connected the community in a multi-day event unlike any before.

This year, ASCP 2021 evolves one step further with a return to in-person programming on top of a virtual experience that will bring even greater opportunities to learn, connect, collaborate, and be inspired.

Whichever format you choose, you will be immersed with all other attendees, experts, and industry leaders, working together to solve the incredible challenges faced today while impacting the future of laboratory medicine.
