What are past attendees saying about ADRP?

Conference Was Absolutely Amazing!!!

Had a really great time and I found the topics engaging and very interesting. I loved hearing the speakers and I enjoyed the networking reception

My first ADRP was absolutely amazing and I feel very lucky that I was allowed to attend. The sessions were fantastic and the speakers were very engaging. My highlight was getting to know my international colleagues. I was sad at the closing ceremony because I want to come again!!
