Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine Special Issue

The SD was asked by the Editor-in-Chief of CCLM to promote a more interactive and cooperative relationship between the SD Cs and WGs and the journal. The final idea was to arrange a CCLM Special Issue dedicated to highlighting activities of SD Cs/WGs. A listing of the content from the CCLM Special Issue is as follows:
