After three years gap, we conducted a successful ‘OpenSpecimen Annual Community Meet’ in the USA on 19-20th Sept. Around 45+ end-users from 20+ organizations got together to discuss what’s new, feedback, and pain points and have some fun.
Packed with various workshops, user training sessions, and presentations by some of our largest customers, the event was a huge hit. We will be sharing the highlights soon.
“Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to put this conference together. I appreciated the opportunity to speak at OSCON22 and thought the conference was incredibly useful and informative. What you have done with OpenSpecimen is very impressive.”
– Prof. Mark Watson, Washington University School of Medicine
