Director's Letter
Greetings ,

The next BioTherapy Live! broadcast is coming up on April 20 at 11:00 am PDT (2:00 pm Eastern Time). The program will focus on maggot therapy questions, since many more questions came in before and during last month's program than could be addressed at that time.

If you have maggot therapy questions, send them in, or text us during the live sessions. Questions presented live during the broadcast will always receive attention first.
Four new speakers have been added to the roster, covering topics such as leech therapy, helminthic therapy, bee venom therapy, and bacteriophage. Dates and times for those sessions are still being arranged.

If you have experience in biotherapy or biotherapy research, please join our panel of experts. Contact us to find out how to share your insights with our subscribers and attendees.

Advancing healthcare through education and research in biotherapy,
