Recently, the History of Clinical Chemistry Division of the AACC recognized Ann Gronowski, PhD for her efforts to promote the heritage of clinical chemistry by presenting her with the Caraway-Meites Award. This award recognizes individuals whose efforts have documented and described the origins, development, and impact of clinical chemistry on the practice of medicine.
In the February 2021 issue of Clinical Chemistry Gronowski along with Caroline Franks, PhD published a reflection that looks back on the first women to serve in AACC leadership roles and the first women to receive AACC awards. They also examined the representation of women in AACC Leadership and Awards and provide five recommendations to promote the advancement of women.
Gronowski received her PhD in Endocrinology-Reproductive Physiology from University of Wisconsin, and is a diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Chemistry. She also is a Past-President of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry and the American Board of Clinical Chemistry and serves on the Board of Editors for the journal Clinical Chemistry.
Her research focuses primarily on the laboratory diagnostics of endocrinology and reproductive physiology with a particular emphasis on maternal fetal medicine. She is passionate about professional development especially for women.
