Bubbling with excitements!

A Message from Medical Center of the Americas:
Dear BIOMED Registrants:

Thank you for already helping to make this event a success through great participation! We do want to note, however, that this unexpected level of participation may result in a few logistical problems at the events. Furthermore, we will be experimenting with different types of sessions and events to determine what works best. We request that you be patient with us as we work hard to make this first year event successful. We will have evaluation forms available and hope that you provide honest feedback to so that we can improve the event in future years.
