2022 전미 한인 생명과학자의날

KLAM은 NEBS(보스턴지역), NYKB(뉴욕지역), KOLIS(San Fransisco Bay지역) 한인단체와 함께 보건산업진흥원 미국지사 후원을 통해 ‘전미생명과학자의날’ 행사를 온라인으로 개최하게 되었습니다. 개최 일시는 1월 22일 1-5PM (EST)입니다. 각 단체 별로 두 분씩 총 여덟 분이 선정되어 각 25분간 연구발표를 진행하고 breakout room에서 QnA 및 네트워킹시간도 가질 예정입니다. 타 지역의 연구자분들과도 소통할 수 있는 좋은 기회가 되리라 생각합니다.

KLAM의 1월 정기 세미나는 본 행사로 대체하게 되었음을 알려드립니다.
