CRISPR 2021

Labroots invites you to the 4th Annual CRISPR Virtual Event!  This event will continue the conversation of the abilities of CRISPR-based editing, next-gen editing tools, precision in gene editing and using CRISPR for drug discovery.

The planning committee will bring together thought leaders from academia, trained researchers from clinical laboratories, and industry experts from pharmaceutical to biotech. Experts will share case studies, experiences, and new developments regarding best practices and address appropriate alternatives that are currently being developed. 

The tracks for this year's event includes:
  • CRISPR Biology
    • Discovery and Classification of CRISPR base editors
  • CRISPR in Disease
    • Gene Therapy
    • Oncology
    • COVID-19
  • Ethics and Perspectives on CRISPR Medical Applications
    • Intellectual Property Disputes
    • Regulatory Framework
    • Ethical concerns

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Like the 2020 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of Labroots' most popular T-shirts.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 CRISPR Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here
