This spring San Diego downtown will be buzzing with scientific discussions as our city hosts a number of major scientific symposia.? We are excited to attend and soak in all the science that will be shared during these two months.? Our own Mary Canady will also be participating in a panel discussing on the triumphs and trials of Transitioning from Academia to Industry at the Annual meeting of the Biophysical Society on Tuesday, February 28, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM.
