In a move suggesting the growing importance of proteomics in the clinical chemistry arena — and vice versa — the American Association for Clinical Chemistry has made proteomics a permanent division, starting on Jan. 1, 2010.

Proteomics has been a provisional division at AACC for the past five years as members of the division worked to move it toward permanent status by setting down bylaws, creating election rules, and building up its membership.
