Come glimpse the Future of Biotech! This panel will highlight the importance of early STEM education and biotechnology in particular. To ensure a diverse and innovative science workforce of the future, a continuum of resources, mentoring and constant encouragement is required. BioGENEius high school finalists, some of the brightest young innovators in the U.S. will discuss their research experiences and how their science evolved. Our BioDiversity panel members will share their thoughts on a future in science from the youngest perspectives. And we will discuss how these programs would not exist without dedicated teachers and institutions along with corporate social responsibility. The Future of Biotech will inspire you as you can peer into the minds of our “next gen” innovators!
