4th Biotechnology World Congress

University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE
February 15 th - 18th, 2016

This paramount international conference will bring an opportunity to researchers and decision makers in biotechnology to get their latest discoveries acknowledged on the global arena.

The conference that will continue for four days will take you to the voyage of knowledge providing you an opportunity to both foster collaborations and learn about the biotechnological advancements taking place in the international academic and corporate biotechnology communities.

This international conference, co-organized by Eureka Science and the University of Sharjah, under the patronage of the His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin-Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member, Ruler of Sharjah and President of the University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE aims to highlight state-of-the-art researches in the field of biotechnology. It will provide an excellent opportunity to scientists to benefit from the lectures of a number of Nobel laureates and other top scientists regarding the current state of developments and the new challenges and horizons facing the scientists. The University of Sharjah is located within a twenty minute drive of the dynamic tourist destination of Dubai, thereby providing the attendees of the conference exciting opportunities for innumerable leisure activities.

The conference aims to shed light on the translational nature of biotechnological research, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. Latest researches, business development, strategic alliances, partnering trends, product opportunities, growth business models and strategies, licensing and pharmaceutical biotechnology (e.g. vaccines, CNS, cancer, antibodies), medical biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, protein engineering, plant and environmental technologies, transgenic plant and crops, bioremediation, and microbial diversity research will be the subjects of discussion. It is a four day event that will provide you an opportunity to both foster collaborations and learn about the biotechnological advancements taking place in the international academic and corporate biotechnology communities.

"The 4th Biotechnology World Congress" would provide eminent scientists the opportunity to present their cutting edge researches in the field of biotechnology and its applications in medicine. This conference will be privileged with the honorable presence of a number of Nobel Laureates and leading researchers from all over the world. The previous conferences organized by Eureka Science in February 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 in Dubai met with marvelous success and I am once again greatly looking forward to participate in this exciting scientific event in February 2015. I expect that it will soon become the top notch conference in the Middle East in the field of biotechnology."
