On Thursday, May 16, ASPET welcomes everyone to D.C. where you can connect with each other on the conference’s opening night in a fun and inspiring location outside the hotel. The registration fee includes a free ticket. At the museum, test your spy skills and explore the tradecraft through the stories of individuals and their missions, tools and techniques. The exhibits will be open exclusively for ASPET attendees as well as the top floor ballroom for post-exhibit mingling and snacks. Immerse yourself in the interactive exhibits, reconnect with old allies and forge new connections, as we kick off our long weekend dedicated to pharmacology.
The program is designed to allow plenty of opportunities to share a meal with other scientists focused on pharmacology and experimental therapeutics. You can network and enjoy a meal with your colleagues.
The schedule includes 30-minute breaks between sessions. You don’t have to rush to find the next session room. Take the time to linger to meet the speakers or chat with other attendees in the session or compare notes with a colleague
who attended a different session.
Since the opening session on Thursday, May 16th doesn’t start until 2:30 pm, you can have the morning to join in a smaller ASPET group for site-seeing tours or a community service project. More info coming soon.
