Building Biotech – Challenges and Opportunities In and Out of Canada

Event Summary

The Discovery Foundation and the Student Biotechnology Network are delighted to kick off the 2017-2018 season with our annual Building Biotech Event. This year, with Building Biotech: Challenges and Opportunities In and Out of Canada,, we hope that the stories that are shared and ideas exchanged inspire you to continue to reach for the stars.
