Join the mini-symposium, August 30th, 2019, about “Precision CRISPR: Applications, Standardization and Reproducibility of Genome Editing”
Nuclease based genome editing technologies are revolutionizing academia, life science and are expected to found the basis for next generation gene therapies. The annual mini-symposium, which is organized by IDA Biotechnology, Danish Biotechnological Society, Copenhagen Center for Glycomics and hosted by BioInnovation Institute, will focus on precision genome editing applications, standardization, reproducibility, ethical and IP aspects of genome editing.
The program includes the following speakers:
Samantha Maragh, NIST/USA
Roberto Nitsch, AstraZeneca/Se
Casey Jowdy, MilliporeSigma/USA
Kevin Holden, Synthego, USA
Marcello Maresca, AstraZeneca/Se
Jason Potter, ThermoFisher/USA
Willhem van Loon, Tecan/Ch
Eric P. Bennett, KU/DK
Helle Friis Svenstrup, AWA patent/DK
