It’s Post-Pandemic and we’re back on the road traveling to the 4 corners of the Earth. Where will we get to see you? Here’s a list of upcoming events, and because … what’s travel without great food? … I’ve included some of my favorite restaurants in each city. Write me if you’d like to meet up or send restaurant ideas! We hope to see YOU!
⭐ Check out the stars- they mark events organized by EpiVax!
Riley Nolan and I just returned from a very chilly Chicago where we attended the Conference of Research Workers in Animal Disease (CRWAD). I spoke about the “EpiCC” tool, that we use to compare vaccines against emergent strains of viruses. It was great to see our friends at CRWAD! Thank you for attending my presentation! For a taste of true Chicago, try Shaw’s Crab House in the deepest depths of River North.
February / March Meetups!
⭐ Women in Biotech (New York City)
A yearly meetup of inspiring female leaders in the biotech industry near Chelsea and Soho (for a dose of Art). Write me if you are interested in attending or speaking at this event. Restaurants? Too many great ones! Send me YOUR favorite restaurant in NYC, I want to try it!
And … we can’t wait for BIO Europe Spring (March 18-20)! Sarah Moniz and I are looking forward to seeing our Biz Dev friends in the amazing city of Barcelona. BCN is food-forward! Check out the dish that I had at GATs last year. Write to set up a meeting at the conference… or if you want a restaurant recommendation!
