The future is now: where is synthetic biology taking us?

June 29, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm AEST

The United States is 10 years ahead of Australia in synbio innovation – what learnings can we gain as our industry launches?

Synthetic biology is already transforming how we grow food, what we eat, and how we create medicines.

With the Australian industry in its infancy, what can we learn from abroad about this brave new world we are entering?

Hear an exclusive keynote from US industry expert, Dr Emily Leproust, CEO & Founder of Twist Bioscience, followed by a discussion between leading voices in the Australian synthetic biology space to unpack:

  • What is the potential of this innovation for Australia and the world?
  • What can we learn for those who have gone before us?
  • Where is this technology taking us – and ethically is that okay?

Join us for an insightful conversation about this new frontier of innovation, that the CSIRO predicts will be worth over $27 billion annually by 2040.
