Two Free Virtual Sessions: Long COVID and International Trainees

Grant Holley, PhD - January 12, 2022

Each two-hour session is FREE for ASGCT members and only $50 for non-members!

ASGCT'S Insight Series is a new virtual series designed to provide attendees with the latest research and insights on a variety of cutting-edge topics presented by leading gene and cell therapy experts. Topics are chosen jointly by two ASGCT committees whose collaboration will ensure programming unique from the ASGCT Annual Meeting. We hope to see you at one or both of the first two sessions later this month!
