ATS Welcome Home Reception

Join us to kick off ATS 2022 at a "Welcome Home" reception in support of the Research Program!

It’s been three years since we were last able to gather in person, and there has never been a better time to come together as a Society and support research!

We recognize how important this opportunity to reconnect with your colleagues is so, this year, we’ve eliminated the formal program to help you make the most of your networking time, while enjoying light refreshments.

The event has evolved, but the mission remains the same, and it’s more important than ever. Each ticket still includes a tax-deductible donation to the ATS Research Program, which goes directly to supporting early-career scientists.

You can purchase your tickets to the Benefit when you register for ATS 2022. If you’d like to make a gift to the ATS Research Program directly, you can do so on our website.

When: 6 – 7:30 p.m. PT, May 14, 2022
Marriott Marquis San Francisco

We’d like to thank Genentech as Sapphire Level Supporter of the Benefit.
