Post SOT ApconiX Post!

Team ApconiX (Ruth Roberts, Richard Knight, Mike Morton, Paul Duffy and Claire Sadler) had a truly outstanding SOT2018 with great new science and great new contacts.

Ruth Roberts was the proud recipient of the 2018 SOT Founders Award presented by SOT president Patti Ganey. Claire Sadler presented in a session on Elevator Pitch followed by a round table coaching session.

It was wonderful to see so many of our colleagues and friends old and new at the ApconiX booth – many of you were successful in winning the chocolate, including Helen Booler from Genentech!

See you next year in Baltimore!
