Workshop Day May 16th, 2014

Hi everyone,

Come out to BGSS Skills Workshop, May 16, from 1:30-4:30pm!

Choose three sessions on topics like shRNA, FACS, or metabolomics and brush up on that technique you’ve always wanted to learn more about, but haven’t had the chance. See the full itinerary below. Workshops will be followed by wine and cheese in the Goodman Cancer Centre Atrium, we’ll see you there!

Please register below, and we’ll see you on May 16!
