"Speaking at the Chemaxon user group meeting was an enriching experience, thanks to the well-executed presentation setup and an audience that brought forward engaging and thoughtful questions. The event was a prime opportunity to observe Chemaxon's advancements, interact with individuals facing similar challenges, and reconnect with past Pfizer colleagues. The event's organization and the congeniality of the Chemaxon staff contributed to an atmosphere that was both professional and welcoming. This gathering was a testament to the shared pursuits and challenges within our industry, emphasizing the universal needs of pharmaceutical and biotech companies."
