Submit your abstract HERE: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=abc20200

The ABioM Conference will take place March 30 to April 1, 2020 in College Park, MD.

The theme of the 2020 conference is “Accelerating Advanced Biomanufacturing Through Discovery to Implementation.”

The conference will celebrate the success of the field and will stimulate collaborations and promote R&D and education programs in advanced biomanufacturing by identifying gaps and challenges in the field.  The conference program includes podium sessions mixed with keynote lectures and research presentations selected from abstract submission, federal funding agency and private foundation round table discussions, poster sessions, and an exhibition session with pharma and biotech companies.

Four junior investigator awards ($500 each) and eight graduate student awards ($300 each) will be recognized at the conference.
