Highlights of the exposition!

It's been another busy day here in Boston! We've explored the exposition, tracked down the best goodies and met lots and lots of fantastic members - thanks for dropping by. 

Talk highlights included a stream on treating rare diseases using new chemical advances, featuring Xueqing Wang (Pharmacyclics, CA, USA) discussing the discovery of CFTR correctors for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, while another stream highlighted novel treatments to combat chronic pain and confront the opioid epidemic.  Another highlight of the day was the watching The Tetrahedron Prize being awarded to Laura Kiessling (MIT, MA, USA), who then presented her fascinating research on carbohydrates as microbial IDs.
