Director's Letter
Greetings ,

The next BioTherapy Live! broadcast is coming up on May 18 at 3:30 pm EDT (12:30 pm Pacific Time). The program will feature Dr. William Parker, and will address "Translating helminths to the clinic for immunomodulation: where we are now."

Dr. Parker is a well-respected, well-published authority on the relationships and interactions between microbes, parasites, and the immune system; we are quite privileged to have him join us. Catch his presentation live on Zoom or Facebook if you can (Zoom link to follow). If you can not participate in the live program, you can still find the recording posted on Facebook and YouTube afterwards.

If you have experience in biotherapy or biotherapy research, please join our panel of experts. Contact us to find out how to share your insights with our subscribers and attendees.

Advancing healthcare through education and research in biotherapy,
