It’s very rare to get an opportunity to be interacting with other researchers who are interested in a completely different research area, compared to the same people you always meet when you go to an immunotherapy/oncology conference. It’s really a great opportunity to get the latest and greatest about the science, but also to interact with colleagues that normally you wouldn’t have a chance to meet with.
