BOSTON, Massachusetts – Bioinsider LLC (Bioinsider), a company dedicated to creating a quality, unbiased virtual meeting platform for communication among the scientific, policymaker and business communities, has opened registration and a call for speaker proposals for its four-part virtual meeting series, Together as One COVID-19 Series. The series begins Thursday, June 18, 2020 with “Diagnostic Landscape for COVID-19,” which will focus on molecular, serology, rapid testing, and how to properly handle the pandemic with the current testing capacity.

The ‘Together as One’ COVID-19 Series will provide insights on diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, and life after Coronavirus. All net proceeds from the events will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for World Health Organization.

“Sharing new scientific findings and important perspectives from innovators and decision-makers has never before been so crucial in our industry,” said Bioinsider LLC Founder and CEO Dr. Ngoc ‘Emily’ Le. “With the current state of things, in-person meetings are no longer possible. This is where Bioinsider comes in. Each virtual event will feature presentations from thought leaders, speed networking sessions, and face-to-face breakout brainstorming sessions. Our objective is to host virtual events that allow attendees and participants to create connections, enrich knowledge, foster collaborations, drive the success of their research, and spark innovations.”
