AusBiotech 2010, with its key theme 'Creating Global Solutions', will focus on the solutions that biotechnology is developing to deliver a brighter future. Whether it is in new therapies, diagnostics, medical devices, agricultural, industrial or climate change, biotechnology is at the heart of finding better options and answers to issues that we share around the globe. From the research laboratory, through the process of development and commercialisation, to the consumer, it's all about creating solutions.
We would like to extend to you an invitation to join us at the 2010 AusBiotech national conference, the premier biotechnology conference for Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
