Collaborating for a better world

"In the more than 20 years since attending my first annual meeting, I continue to find inspiration from the AOCS community – pushing me in my work and helping me find solutions when I hit roadblocks.

Scientists like us believe in changing the world. Connecting with others who share that passion and energy at the annual meeting is special – and something I look forward to every year."
