Biotechnology is a huge part of our lives, from the clothes we wear and the food we eat to how we combat hunger and disease.

It has played a leading role in developing Covid-19 vaccines and treatment. This has brought about biotech innovation which is accelerating faster than ever before.

Nabiha Saklayen, CEO and Co-founder of Cellino and a panel of biotech founders will discuss the promise of biotech and the opportunities and challenges for realising its potential.
