LES USA-Canada "Technology Transfer with the Human Element: MenAfriVac"

The LES USA-Canada IUGI Sector is pleased to announce a combined webinar and sector-wide meeting at 2pm (ET), on Thursday, August 3. The webinar features a presentation by the NIH’s Peter Soukas, on technology transfer to developing countries, particularly “TT with the Human element: MenAfriVac.” The presentation of this interesting topic is especially notable as it features a previous IUGI Deal of Distinction winner.
