Discovery and Impact Symposium Series

Discovery and Impact Symposium Series

The Discovery and Impact Symposium is a monthly series where University of Oregon and Thermo Fisher Scientific researchers will shed light on new understanding and innovations in the biosciences and their potential impact in the world. This series will increase scientific interactions between UO and Thermo Fisher, foster greater partnerships, and provide insights into technologies, materials, and techniques that could further each organizations’ mission to advance society and contribute to a healthier, cleaner, and safer world.

We hope you can join us for the next seminar! Stay tuned for details.
