Biopeople Newsletter March 2020 - Biopeople

Welcome to the March 2020 issue of Biopeople's Newsletter

Welcome to the March 2020 issue of Biopeople's Newsletter

Our focus in this newsletter is on the biotech companies that due to the COVID-19 pandemic make an effort to meet the requirements for research and testing either through research projects, supporting research projects or offering their capacity in one way or another. This is reflected in the profile of the month - PentaBase, based in Odense and working to support Denmark combating the COVID-19 disease.

Biopeople has cancelled and postponed meetings that were planned to take place in March and April and is currently considering webinars as a way to hold already planned events this spring. Please keep an eye on our calendar.

Enjoy your reading!
