After three years, The 6th Conference of the Israel Society for Biotechnology Engineering (ISBE)
is returning as in-person meeting December 25, 2022, Dan Panorama, Tel Aviv. You are welcome to benefit from this multi-disciplinary conference, which will provide a stimulating forum for sharing emerging research results presented by leading researchers and students as well as new technologies presented by industry professionals. New research equipment and state-of-the art supplies will be displayed in a commercial exhibition.
The conference program will feature an opening plenary talk by Prof. Ron Milo, an environmental Biologist at the Weizmann Institute of Science; invited lectures, contributed lectures and short talks by graduate students in parallel sessions, as well as posters and a commercial exhibition. All these will reflect the state of the art in the field of biotechnology engineering in the academy and in the industry. This year we will hold special sessions on “Bioenergy & Environment”, “Alternative Proteins” and “Synthetic Biology”, in addition to our well established sessions in the fields of “Bio-Nano”, “Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials” and “Big Data”. A closing panel, hosted by Dr. Miriam Amiram and Dr. Omer Yehezkeli will bring together a set of leading thinkers to discuss best possible ways to move “From academia to industry”. As always, we will award 3 Best Poster Presentations chosen from the posters presented during the ISBE 2022, and light the Chanukah menorah.
The Israel Society for Biotechnology Engineering
The purpose of the society is to become home to the multidisciplinary community of those involved in the field of biotechnology engineering. It is geared towards scientists and students from universities and colleges, R&D professionals and biotechnology engineers from the industry.
The discipline of Biotechnology Engineering encompasses the understanding of biological systems based on their chemical, physical properties and on engineering principles. It’s basic aim is to utilize biological and biomimetic systems to develop technologies and research fields needed to promote human health through medical advances and to protect the environment via the sustainable use of natural resources.
Biotechnology Engineering resides in the junction between life sciences, chemical process engineering, chemistry, and physics. Together with a profound understanding of living systems from the genetic level that incorporates in-depth knowledge of biomaterials and biological processes involved, this field engages engineering principles that enable the development of methods and processes on an industrial scale.
