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. The event will be held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 19 â 22 October 2010 (note the Conference Program will commence on 20 October). It is proudly hosted by AusBiotech Limited, the biotechnology industry organisation representing more than 3,000 members, in the interests of developing the biotechnology sector in Australia.
The event is once again supported by the State Government of Victoria. The Premier of Victoria, the Hon John Brumby, welcomed an independent study showing the intangible benefits of AusBiotech 2009 to Victoria. Click here to view the Premierâs comments.
