Must-see sessions at this year’s AusBiotech national conference

AusBiotech 2013 features a superb line-up of speakers. The Millis Oration will be delivered by Dr Mark Shackleton from the Melanoma Research Laboratory at Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, who will explore the Implications of Cancer Heterogeneity for Cancer Treatment and Research. He will discuss the fascinating layers of molecular evaluation now being undertaken to diagnose and effectively treat cancer.

Professor Göran Roos, Chair of the Advanced Manufacturing Council, will share his views for the advanced manufacturing sector and carefully evaluate what the future holds. He will review why manufacturing matters to an economy, the historical development of manufacturing, and the role of biotechnology in securing its future.

Other intriguing drawcards include a closer look at the Challenges of Establishing a Small Biotech Company with Professor Ian Frazer, CEO and Director of Research for the Translational Research Institute. Conversations around commercialisation will continue into the Asia market session, which will examine the many pursuits and potential projects that have emerged in the Year of the Snake.
