12/2/2022 Friday 3-7PM

Wood Basic Science Building, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

725 N. Wolfe Street Baltimore, MD 21205

하택집 박사님께서 keynote lecture를 맡아주셨고,  Professional development session을 통해 student, post-doc, industry, faculty career advice의 시간을 가지려고 합니다. 더불어 푸짐한 식사와 award 시상을 진행하려고 합니다.

많은 관심을 부탁드리고 회원분들의 네트워킹과 지역 한인생명과학 커뮤니티의 발전을 위해 꼭 참여해주시기를 부탁드립니다.

원활한 준비를 위해 참가여부와 breakout session interest를 알아보기 위한 RSVP에 참여해주시면 준비하는데 많은 도움이 될것 같습니다.
