There are no shortages of compelling reasons why attending SFTCG meeting is beneficial to you and your lab or institution!
Following are the many benefits you can present to your supervisor.

Learning about the advances and breakthroughs in other focuses of study can translate to new approaches for your own lab’s work that you may not think to explore without this exposure. SFTCG is the best place to gain a broad perspective on the field.
Bring information and training back to the lab. Findings presented at the conference can be shared with other lab and team members to extend the benefits of attending to your entire research group.
Learn about the newest data and tools from the poster sessions and the exhibition. Labs save time and money by improving their research methods. New tools and technologies are unveiled to attendees of SFTCG meeting.
Investigate potential opportunities for collaborations or develop relationships with other organisations on behalf of your research team. SFTCG provides ample opportunity to meet with attendees with similar interests.
