Dear Colleagues,

Developing innovative and effective biotechnology solutions to problems encountered by us in health, environment and in agriculture is a pressing challenge faced by today's researchers. There is a need for cutting-edge research and development efforts in biotechnology and new strategic partnerships in this important interdisciplinary field.

At the Biotechnology World Congress in Sharjah, the participants will have the opportunity to listen to and interact with leading international scientists (including Nobel Laureates) and decision makers in biotechnology.

The conference will feature a variety of lectures in a number of key sessions in biotechnology, including a commercial exhibition and poster sessions. The sessions given will include, strategic alliances in biotechnology, pharmaceutical biotechnology, medical biotechnology, plant and environmental biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, and industrial biotechnology.

The conference aims to provide a diverse perspective on the rapid developments in new and emerging fields of biotechnology and how these are presenting new opportunities and challenges to biotechnological scientists and decision makers.

We look forward to welcoming interested participants to the Biotechnology World Congress which will bring together the international leaders in this field in the exotic environment of Sharjah and Dubai. The city of Sharjah is a great tourist attraction offering a range of facilities to visitors - a warm climate, museum, famous landmarks, breathtaking archeology museum, shopping centers, exotic restaurants with a variety of cuisines, comfortable hotel accommodation, and a safe, welcoming and friendly environment.
