Description

ABOUT

The Iowa Biotech Showcase & Conference: Striving Toward a Sustainable Future is a two-day conference on March 1-2, 2022, featuring a biotech pitch competition, networking reception, key collaborations sessions, industry-specific tracks, a plenary keynote and sustainability panel, an industry-focused legislative update, and a 1:1 meeting scheduler. IBSC brings together innovators, investors, educators, biotech leaders, and support vendors, and provides top-notch information and content for Iowa's diverse biotech industry.

The 2022 IBSC will return to its traditional in-person format and turn its focus toward addressing the various roles of sustainability in Iowa’s diverse biotech industry, as both the public and private sectors work to more seamlessly integrate sustainable solutions into everyday life. The biotechnology industry is a natural leader in this space, and Iowa is a breeding ground for innovators that are advancing the unlimited opportunities to create sustainable, biological solutions. The IBSC will closely examine Iowa’s role in sustainable biotechnology on the global stage.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

IowaBio is excited to announce that Dr. Lisa Schulte Moore will serve as the Keynote Speaker at the 2022 IBSC. Dr. Schulte Moore is a professor in the Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management and associate director of the Bioeconomy Institute at Iowa State University. She conducts research and teaches in the areas of agriculture, ecology, forestry and human-landscape interactions. Her research addresses the integration of continuous living cover into agricultural landscapes to support new markets and to meet societal goals for clean water, healthy soils, abundant wildlife and inspiring recreational opportunities. She works to return more of the value from agricultural supply chains to rural communities and the land, and develops relationships and institutional capacity so diverse groups of people can more effectively work together. Continue Reading >>
