A multitude of opportunities will be discussed, from general best practices to specific approaches to optimize methodologies such as Mass Spectrometry or High-Performance Liquid Chromatography. In the end, participants will leave with a deeper understanding of what sustainable practice can look like, how to initiate change, and where to refine one’s skills.
