“The opportunity to attend DIA was beneficial in multiple ways. First, I had the chance to showcase my research – this was invaluable – because senior colleagues ask quite thought provoking questions which will certainly be of major help when writing up the paper. Second, I attended excellent sessions, which were practical and educational.... Third, DIA was a great networking opportunity. I have made links with my peers and also with senior colleagues....”
- Sarah-Jo Sinnott, MPharm, MPSI, University College Cork, Ireland
“I, personally according to my experiences, would recommend final year graduate students to attend DIA.  DIA can make those young people to understand what the government and society need,
which is equally important as the laboratory sciences and textbook.”

-Jin Zhang, PhD, Post-doctoral Fellow, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
