The BioRN Lounge is the monthly networking event for members of the BioRN Cluster. We welcome representatives from biotech and life science companies in the BioRN cluster as well as scientists from our research institutes. After a short update of BioRN Cluster activities and news, an invited speaker from the network presents and discusses with the participants, scientific trends, outbreaking techniques, outstanding research and more.
