What's New

AADR Holds its First Fall Focused Symposium
AADR thanks everyone who attended its first Fall Focused Symposium December 3-4, at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Under the theme “Nanotechnology in the Health Sciences,” the symposium featured poster presentations as well as oral presentations by leaders in the field of nanotechnology. Feedback from attendees was extremely positive. In addition to learning about cutting-edge nanotechnology, the small scale of the meeting lent itself to productive discussion sessions.

Read next month’s Science Advocate for a full write-up about the event.
