Biotech Meet Up

Mar 12, 2018

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

Fossil fuel has brought us far but with unprecedented effects on climate. This century, the science of biology can help solve global problems.
Through the use of microbes and enzymes, we can produce bio-based chemicals and fuels, recycle waste, and make food production more efficient.
For millennia, humans have used biotech to make bread, cheese, beer and wine, but we have only scratched the surface in terms of understanding the potential. There is so much left to do and to discover. We walk on unexplored ground.
Connect with entrepreneurs, startups, researchers, companies, non-profits and others to exchange ideas and ask questions.
