OSCC President’s Message


As I return to the OSCC Council, I am honoured and humbled to accept the role of OSCC President. I eagerly look forward to working collaboratively with the OSCC Council to support the needs of our membership during my term.

Firstly, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Dana Bailey, our past president for her outstanding leadership over the past two years. Under Dana’s guidance, the OSCC witnessed the successful return of in-person Annual Meetings in Toronto (2022) and Kitchner (2023). Dana and Council have also revitalized the OSCC Mission, Vision, and Values statements to better reflect our society. Thank you to the outgoing council members and Dana for your dedication and advancing the society during their tenure. Additionally, I extend a warm welcome to our new council members, Drs. Curtis Oleschuk, Cristiana Stefan, and Ivan Stevic.

Looking ahead, the OSCC is committed to organizing in-person Annual Meeting the fall and exploring additional educational opportunities for the membership in the spring. We will continue to improve OSCC website to better enable members to locate valuable information. Finally, we aspire to foster stronger relationships with the OMA and other Clinical laboratory scientists as we continue in our journey to become regulated health professionals.

In closing, I encourage all our members to actively engage with the OSCC council throughout 2024 by sharing your ideas and suggestions.

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and productive 2024.


Michael Knauer, PhD, FCACB
President, OSCC 2024-2026
