RTP180: Genetics

NOVEMBERS’S RTP180 TOPIC | GENETICS

PRESENTED BY RTI INTERNATIONAL

The science of genetics and the related boom of research in our region is astounding. In slating speakers for this topic, we found ourselves wanting more time to tell these stories; five minutes will only scrape the surface of the great work being done!

Join us on November 19 to hear from five experts on genetics from completely different angles of the industry. Topics will include newborn check screenings, genome editing, applications in developing worlds, and more! Come ready to learn, ask questions, and discover the innovations happening right in our backyard.
