SLAS Ignite Academic Theater Presentations

Life sciences research today is an increasingly collaborative endeavor, with individuals and organizations realizing tremendous benefit by tapping into the experience, insights and capabilities of peers and complementary organizations to develop the medicines and innovations that improve the human condition.

SLAS is proud to have served as a venue for collaboration since the Society’s founding.  Bringing together a diverse community of engineers, researchers, scientists, business leaders and pioneering academic experts has enabled SLAS members to advance scientific research by using the latest technologies and insights provided by fellow members of the SLAS community.
