8th Annual BioConnect Symposium

The McGill Biotechnology Graduate Student Society (BtGSS) is organizing a conference titled “8th Annual BioConnect Symposium In Conjunction With International Biotechnology Symposium 2018” under the theme “Bioconnecting Academia and Industry” at Palais De Congrés in Montreal on August 16th, 2018.

This year, we have integrated the BioConnect Symposium into the IUPAC-International Biotechnology Symposium 2018 (#IBS2018) to connect researchers, professionals, entrepreneurs and students working in the different fields of biotechnology from around the world. This conference is also open to undergraduate and graduate students and is a great way  to learn about career prospects of biotechnology and biology related fields in both academia and industry as well as explore the future and growth of these fields. This full-day symposium will be held on the fifth day of IBS2018 and will feature presentations by internationally renowned scientists and professionals, a poster presentation competition, an in-depth panel discussion and a networking cocktail.

We have extended the abstract submission deadline for the poster presentation competition to 30th July, 2018. Please send your abstracts to biotechnology.grad@gmail.com.
