Zing Scientific Advisory Board

Zing Conferences is incredibly grateful to our advisory board, whose advice and wisdom supports us in our endeavours. The advisory board is made up of key contributors to successful conferences that give general advice on all areas of conference content and organisation in addition to advocating on behalf of underrepresented communities in science such as women and students. Taking advice from experienced scientists and conference chairs allows us to meet our company objectives as defined in our mission statement and maximise the profit we earn to reinvest back into the scientific community.Jane Hill, Zing CEO
