Share Your Expertise and Insight with the Alabama Bioscience Community; Deadline July 17 

This fall, from October 5-9, the Alabama bioscience community will come together for the annual BIO Alabama conference. While the look and feel of large gatherings is still uncertain, one thing is certain - BIO Alabama is looking for the best speakers to INSPIRE, EDUCATE, and CONNECT our researchers, scientists, startups, manufacturers, and medium and large bioscience companies.  

During this conference, BIO Alabama will amplify the innovative work of our members, partners, and the broader Alabama bioscience community. This call for sessions is open to all researchers, scientists, and business leaders working to change the way we feed, fuel, and heal our world. Whether you are directly or indirectly involved in translating science for the greater good, we invite you to submit a session proposal.

The conference theme is a continuation of BIO Alabama’s mission: CONNECTING THE ALABAMA BIOSCIENCE ECOSYSTEM

Hybrid approach to planning: As you prepare your proposal, keep in mind that BIO Alabama’s annual conference may have virtual and in-person components. Conference dates may expand beyond Oct. 7-8 and include more opportunities during the entire week of Oct. 5-9. More details will be shared as we get closer to the date and with guidance from evolving pandemic public health guidelines.
