It was an honor for CreaGen Life Science Incubator and CreaGen Inc. to have served as volunteers at the “6th Annual Advances in Chemical Sciences Symposium” to support the community of the New Eastern Section of the Amercian Chemistry Society (NESACS).
The speakers have shared their latest break-throughs and new discoveries in the chemistry realm. Attendees and vendors from all around New England area and Canada came together to be a part of incredible event and made it such a great success. We look to the next ACS Symposium.
