OpenSpecimen Biobanking Workshop
Hosted by AXT, The Lowy Biorepository and Krishagni Solutions
This workshop is designed for users or potential users of OpenSpecimen and gives you the opportunity to share experiences with other users. It will also allow you to speak to Krishagni Solutions, the architects of OpenSpecimen so you can influence how OpenSpecimen evolves.
Come and speak to other OpenSpecimen users and share your experiences. This also provides you the chance to speak to the developers about features and functionalities you would like OpenSpecimen to have in the future.
