We are excited to announce that the rescheduled 16th ISBR Symposium will be held in St Louis, Missouri from 30 April to 4 May 2023.
Following our reluctant cancellation of the symposium originally scheduled for April 2022 because of challenges related to COVID-19, the ISBR Board has decided to hold the symposium in the northern spring of 2023. By this time, holding a major in-person symposium should again be a realistic proposition.
The symposium will take place at the originally-planned venue – St Louis’ iconic Union Station Hotel. We will be building on the extensive preparation that has already gone into the 16th ISBR Symposium to present an exceptionally relevant and interesting program exploring the theme of Advancing Science in support of sustainable bio-innovation. Coming at a time when the contribution of biotechnology has never been more important, attendees will have a unique opportunity to engage with the world’s leading experts on diverse topics through a comprehensive program of plenary, parallel, workshop and poster sessions.
Importantly, participants will also be able to enjoy the networking and personal liaison benefits that can only happen with such an in-person event.
We will be reaching out to speakers, sponsors and potential participants in the near future with more information. For now, please mark 30 April to 4 May 2023 in your calendars for what will undoubtedly be an engaging and greatly anticipated 16th ISBR Symposium (ISBR2023).
