Mid-Atlantic Pharmacology Society Annual Biotech Roundtable

Friday, October 30, 2020, 1:00 pm – 2:45 pm ET

The Mid-Atlantic region is a major biotechnology hub with Philadelphia at its center. In 2014 MAPS introduced into its meeting agenda a biotech roundtable as a stage for presenting and promoting local biotech, with the goal of raising awareness among academicians, students, and other public and private scientific interests of the potential opportunities in cutting-edge innovation that exist in our region. By popular demand, the Biotech Roundtable has become a mainstay of the annual meeting ever since.

This year’s MAPS meeting will be held virtually and will focus exclusively on the biotech roundtable. Panelists will discuss novel approaches to combating COVID-19 and educational efforts to foster interest in biotechnology.
