AFOB SUMMER FORUM 2018

Current Issues in Biotechnology for Human Health and Welfare in Asia

August 22-24, 2018

Incheon, Korea

[First Announcement and Call for Paper]

 

AFOB Summer Forum is a bi-annual event of Asian Federation of Biotechnology (AFOB). The 1st AFOB Summer Forum was held in Qingdao, Mainland China in August 2016, and this is the 2nd one. The Forum aims to stimulate presentation and discussion among thought leaders on current social, industrial, and ethical issues related to biotechnology rather than academic or technical issues. We expect that the forum brings together academic researchers, industrial practitioners, and government officials
