Thank you very much for taking the time to be a part of the World Preclinical Congress in Boston this June! Over 1,000 people joined us this year to make the event a true success. We were joined by a large international community of scientists, clinicians, students and post-doctoral fellows.

The event featured 13 conferences covering various topics in preclinical research, 7 short courses and a training seminar, numerous interactive breakout discussions and networking opportunities. The plenary keynote panel brought together senior executives from pharma and biotech who shared interesting perspectives on how to bring an innovative drug to market by overcoming translational challenges. Student fellowships offered to young researchers helped showcase their research findings. Sponsored talks given by technology and service companies brought people up to speed with the latest offerings in tools and technologies.
