Coming at a time when the contribution of biotechnology to society has never been more important, and against a background of rapid advances in new technologies, we are excited that the rescheduled 16th ISBR Symposium (ISBR2023) has taken place in St Louis, Missouri from 30 April to 4 May 2023.
ISBR2023’s program will be developed around the central theme of Advancing science in support of sustainable bio-innovation and will offer attendees a unique opportunity to engage with the world’s leading experts on the diverse range of topics relevant to sustainable bio-innovation. The symposium theme will be expounded through plenary sessions focusing on four sub-elements of sustainable bio-innovation, namely society, risk analysis, governance and technology under the session themes –
Invited keynote speakers for ISBR2023 include:
In addition, a wide range of topic-specific parallel sessions and workshops will be presented. Most of these will be directly proposed and organized by ISBR members and other interested parties, while some will be compiled from the individual papers submitted by attendees under the open call for abstracts. The ISBR’s tradition of offering open calls for organizing parallel sessions and workshops helps ensure the relevance and quality of the program and representation from all relevant stakeholders and sectors. While parallel sessions offer a more structured opportunity to communicate the latest scientific findings and developments, workshops provide opportunities for more interaction and deeper exploration of a specific topics.
Abstract submission topics for ISBR2023 are listed below and encompass more traditional focus areas like GMOs, food & feed safety, ERA and IPM, as well as more recent ones like genome editing, gene drives and science communication & engagement.
We warmly welcome you and sincerely hope that you enjoy this Symposium and have a pleasant stay in St. Louis
