After two years of digital meetings, we’re bringing synthetic biology’s leading community of innovators, investors, engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, thought leaders, policy makers and academics together to Build Back Better With Biology!
We look forward to celebrating the amazing progress our community has made through the pandemic and vision casting for the very bright future that will be Built with Biology! The conference is designed to provide powerful business opportunities for those currently building with biology and serve as a field trip to the future for those still defining their bio-strategy.
Kick off SynBioBeta 2021 with a round of inspiring sessions featuring some of the biggest investors, policy makers, engineers, Fortune 500 companies, synthetic biology CEOs, and global thought leaders. The afternoon will feature leaders in neuro-tech sharing how breakthrough technologies are transforming neuro-therapeutics and addressing the ethical challenges of this growing industry.
Synthetic biology aims to transform everything we touch. Discover what opportunities are being unlocked by novel food technologies, multidisciplinary techniques, and the changing consumer landscape. There will be key discussions on how the last year has reshaped the biopharma industry and what comes next for advanced diagnostics and therapeutics, including how the world of healthcare has been forever transformed.
Learn what it takes to bring your innovation to market, what tools are now available, and how you can grow your company with new opportunities and strategic partnerships. The afternoon will feature our 1st annual Race Against the Clock Welcome Party for students and startups, as well as our Field Trip to the Future Demo Day for the Press.
