Biotechnology started with the DNA sequencing breakthroughs, the human genome project and cloning/designing cellular organisms. Now, in the light of ever more ground-breaking technology, the SCI Biotechnology Interest Group provides a forum for this industry sector. Its first major event will bring together advances in precision medicine - a concept that seeks to discover/design drugs that deliver a more individual approach to disease management.
Biotechnology is providing new solutions in this area and speakers from both academia and industry will cover the major themes of advances in biopharmaceuticals, AI, gene editing, protein design and drug development - from the molecular level of proteins and DNA through genomes and cells to disease models and therapeutic interventions.
The meeting will also provide networking opportunities for all those with an interest in bringing together biosciences and technology in this important initiative.
