    Beer, Bytes,
    and Biology

    Commonwealth | 11 Broad Canal Way, Cambridge, MA 02142

    You're invited to Beer, Bytes, and Biology!

    Come kick back and relax with some of the brightest biological minds in Boston and Cambridge. Connect with familiar industry peers (and perhaps some new ones) and discuss the latest developments in R&D, lab automation, AI, and the wider industry over a few drinks. Or maybe just catch up with folks!
