CRISPR 2020

LabRoots invites you to the 3rd 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. 

This year's event will include the following topics and tracks:
 
Development and Classification of CRISPR Systems
  • New candidates of CRISPR systems 
  • Genetic drift and regulation of CRISPR systems

CRISPR Applications in Biomedicine and Agriculture

  • CRISPR in Gene therapy Applications
  • CRISPR for Disease Modeling in Biomedical Research 
  • CRISPR Applications in Agriculture and Crop Improvement 
  • CRISPR Applications in Synthetic Biology

CRISPR for Addressing COVID-19 Pandemic

  • CRISPR for COVID-19 diagnostics
  • CRISPR for treatment approaches

Ethical, Social, and Legal Issues in CRISPR applications

  • CRISPR Patent and Intellectual property issues 
  • Formulation of Regulatory Framework 
  • Emerging Ethical concerns of using CRISPR
  • Developing CRISPR Policy

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  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 2019 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 2020 CRISPR Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here

Continuing Education
LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
