Strong SLAS Symposia this Fall – Which are Right for You?

By Hansjörg Haas, Ph.D.

In-person learning always has been an SLAS strength. Our knowledgeable community takes pride in sharing what they know with others interested in expanding their technical abilities.

By Hansjörg Haas, Ph.D.

It is usually pretty easy to see the 'products' that come out of SLAS – conferences and symposia, journals, awards and so on.
