Welcome to the March edition of OBN Update. Despite the recent stormy weather, the year has started off well with a range of successful digital and in-person events. We are also seeing plenty of interest for BioTrinity 2022, which will take place in-person in London. We have an almost complete list of event sponsors, a fantastic line-up of speakers, and a rapidly growing registration from across the Life Science sector including Big Pharma, investors and start-ups.
March also sees no less than three BioLearn events covering 'Tips and tricks to optimise your social media', 'How the drug discovery industry works' and 'Recruiting 101'. And our BioTuesday event at the Epicentre will highlight 'AI and Data innovation in the East of England'. You can register for these events by clicking on the links below.
