About the Discussion Groups:
CASSS began as a local, non-profit chromatography discussion group in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although the society's offerings have now grown to include multiple North American and international scientific symposia and its members span the globe, CASSS still provides local educational and networking opportunities for scientists in Northern California, the Midwest and the greater Washington DC areas. The CASSS Discussion Groups are your opportunity to meet others who understand what you do, in an informal setting, and exchange new ideas.

Our DC Discussion Group Mission:
"Bringing together Industrial Challenges in the Development of Biologics with Advances in Science and Technology."

Who Should Attend?
Anyone in the greater DC/Maryland area affiliated with biotechnology, or interested in learning more about the scientific and technological applications to biotechnology.

When and Where?
The programs will be held bi-monthly on the first Thursday of the month from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm unless otherwise noted. They will alternate between the following 2 locations: 
  • MedImmune* 
    One MedImmune Way, Gaithersburg, MD 20878

  • Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR),
    9600 Gudelsky Drive, Rockville, MD 20852

Registration is FREE, but for security reasons you are required to pre-register for each session you attend.
The last day to pre-register will be the Friday prior to each session. No walk-ins accepted
