EBPS Newsletter Issue 5

We've just dropped our fifth issue of the EBPS Newsletter which includes a welcome address by our new president, Louk Vanderschuren, lots of photos from our recent Braga meeting, a Q&A with our president-elect, Yavin Shaham, plus loads more! On this note, we're also on the lookout for someone who's willing to help us re-design our current website so if this is something that you'd be willing to help EBPS out with, let us know. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the read and as always, welcome feedback on suggestions for future issues.
