“I attended a PIA business meeting during my first AAIC and it turned out to be the best decision of the conference. It was wonderful to meet a group of people that focused on related research, with in-depth scientific discussions, and a group of dedicated people that really want to advance the field. Ever since, I’ve been actively involved with ISTAART’s PIAs.”
