Exchange of Experience IV

Singapore, Singapore

The Exchange of Experience workshop series continues with an event focussing on career paths for core facility staff and the future activities of the Global BioImaging network.

Exchange of Experience IV will be hosted by SingaScope – a Singapore-wide microscopy infrastructure network – and will bring together partners and delegates from the continuously growing GBI network, including representatives from Australia, Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Africa and the United States.

The Exchange of Experience IV workshop will be held in the Biopolis campus in Singapore, the home of A* STAR’s biomedical research institutes, on 13-14 September 2019. The meeting is scheduled to run from lunch-to-lunch with satellite meetings planned before and after the core schedule. A networking dinner on the evening of September 13th will allow delegates to sample Singapore’s famous cuisine and continue to develop a global network.
