Bioengineers have made breakthroughs that could save our health and our habitats. Watch Dr. Luke Bailey discuss Synthetic Biology Live.
Enter Synthetic Biology Live, which brings together world-renowned experts in big trends like intelligence, innovation, the environment, the economy, food production, IT, finance, leadership, management, sports and everything in between.
Three of the biggest stories of the 21st century are artificial intelligence, climate change and synthetic biology. Synthetic biology is an industry of innovation that is developing the ability to disrupt old industries in new and powerful ways. Whether it’s DNA editing to treat diseases, the development of new antibiotics to combat cancer, or methods to produce a better recipe for corn, the future of this industry is unprecedented in both its reach and its success.
Synthetic biology has been around for decades, with numerous peer-reviewed studies demonstrating the potential. The field is dominated by academia, and has relatively few applications for the general public. But together, researchers and practitioners in different industries from all over the world are building on the promise of this field, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, harnessing the next breakthroughs, and taking our planet into the 21st century.
More than 300 attendees are in one room learning the basics of synthetic biology — and the future — during Synthetic Biology Live. Enrich your learning by joining us live at 5 p.m. ET as we chat with world-renowned speakers on this challenging topic.
