CRISPR Virtual Event Series 2021

Labroots invites you to the 4th Annual Event in the CRISPR Virtual Event Series!  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 include:
  • 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

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

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.

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.
