ABM 2021 MEETING
The virtual ABM 2021 meeting aims to bring together a balanced community of experts for a dynamic forum for exchange. The goal of the ABM 2021 meeting is to nurture and grow the community that was established in 2018. Key to the meeting is the development of an updated website, which will serve as a communication hub to identify connections between advanced scientific approaches (e.g., DNA, mass-spectrometry, and antibody-based) and open research questions, thereby fostering focused and mutually beneficial collaborations, as well as providing educational resources.
Join us at ABM 2023 July 19-21, 2023 in NYC!
