Site Guide

Welcome to the Missouri Regional Life Sciences Summit Site Guide. This page will help you find various materials from the summit.

  • If you're looking for materials from a particular speaker or session, the best place to start is our schedule. This has an hour-by-hour listing of the summit's events and clicking either the green underlined text or green icons gives you direct access to complete information as well as bios, abstracts, presentations and video (please note not all sessions and speakers have all of thes materials available online).
  • For an overview of archived materials available, visit our archives page. Down the left side of the page are all sessions and speakers. You can then click a green icon to view bios, abstracts, presentations and video (as available). If an icon is gray, then that particular item is not available for that session or speaker.
  • You can also explore materials by breakout session, speaker or poster category. All archived materials are cross-referenced and cross-linked for maximum flexibility.
  • If you prefer, all materials are also available directly from MOspace, our document repository partner. This is a good option if you want to be able to search accompanying materials. Each poster, session or speaker has its own page on MOspace which in turn links to all available associated content (abstracts, presentations or video).
