Science & Social Networks
Join our 4th Scientific Communication Masterclass
The use of social networks in any scientific communication or mediation approach appears to be an imperative. So much so that we can tend to forget certain fundamental questions: for what objectives and which audiences are each of them best suited? Which network is most relevant to use according to which needs?
On June 11th at 9h

Register before June 5th!
Get free access to the ISCT Advanced Cell Therapy Manufacturing and Regulatory Course
We are delighted to annouce that BioConvS has initiated a partnership with the Intenational Society for Cell Therapy (ISCT) in order to offer to our members access to the ISCT network and training material!
BioConvS will offer, throughout the duration of the DIM program, up to 10 individual yearly licenses of our Basic Lab Membership to members of its community. This notably includes the Advanced Cell Therapy Manufacturing and Regulatory Course, and much more!
