EPPIC events have attracted sponsorships from well-regarded industry leaders and corporate houses. Industry leaders have endorsed EPPIC events for rich and meaningful science and engineering content and the valuable networking opportunities that EPPIC events create. EPPIC membership is open to all professionals interested in all sectors and functions in the life science industry.
