On April 28-29th 2016, the RIBBDD Annual Meeting with the Scientific Advisory Board took place. New exciting data was presented and plans for the future discussed. Animal models and receptor targeting was the main topic of discussion. While the PIs had a meeting with the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), the Young Scientist Network had their own session with an invited speaker and a masterclass. Networking activities engaged both students, PIs and the SAB. The next meeting will be held in September.
