Livestock Biotech Summit

Developing Global Solutions Through Animal Biotechnology

This conference offers a focus on using the tools of biotechnology to improve agricultural animals to address the challenges faced in health, food, and industrial applications worldwide. Topics to be discussed include the communication, research and development, regulatory system, and welfare improvements that can be achieved by the animal biotechnology community.

Who should attend?

  • Industry and academic scientists in both biomedical and agricultural research
  • Executives (R&D, regulatory, animal care, sales)

From Previous  Livestock Biotech Summits: Attendees Explain What Makes This Conference So Exceptional

“I thought the BIO planned events provided great opportunities to network in a more informal and casual environment.”

“Great job on the 2012 conference!”

"I gained a greater understanding of the multitude of issues facing the livestock biotech industry and to network with individuals working in this exciting field!”

“I was able to witness presentations on the most recent developments in livestock technology and policy.”

“As a non-scientist, this conference was helpful by providing me clear insight into the current issues of animal biotechnology.”

“Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to the next livestock biotech summit!”
