This conference focuses on using animal biotechnology to advance the objectives of One Health. The tools of biotechnology are uniquely suited to address challenges at the nexus of human, animal and environmental health. Topics to be discussed include biotechnology applications and policy issues associated with emerging infectious diseases, animal models of human diseases, food safety, biodefense, agricultural productivity, biodiversity conservation, and animal health and welfare.
Who should attend?

Government officials, regulators and policymakers
Investors in innovative pharmaceutical and agricultural technologies
Advocacy groups representing the interests of human health and animal agriculture
Between 2010 and 2014, BIO hosted three Livestock Biotech Summits that focused on the use of genetically engineered animals in agriculture and medicine. This year we are broadening the scope of the conference to encompass the application of many biotechnologies, including genetic engineering, to animals in order to understand, identify and solve problems where animal, human and environmental health issues intersect.
