In May 7-9 2019, Bio-Manguinhos/Fiocruz will promote at Rio de Janeriro the fourth edition of the traditional scientific event IV International Symposium on Immunobiologicals (ISI), along with the seventh edition of the Annual Science and Technology Seminar (ASTS) to encourage technology development, integration between scientists, researchers and research and production institutions, and to give visibility to Brazilian scientific production.
ISI was first conceived as a scientific event with an area to exhibit posters with unpublished papers on vaccines, diagnostic reagents and biopharmaceuticals, in association with lectures, round tables and plenary presentations of selected papers. The fourth edition will also have the Innovation Hub, a space specially designed to encourage collaboration and partnership between researchers and entrepreneurs interested in learning about technologies and infrastructure for technology development available at Fiocruz. At the same time, they can present their own solutions, products and development for other researchers, companies and investors.
The IV ISI is an international event with renowned lecturers that will present innovative themes and discussions to encourage technology development in biotechnology in Brazil and to encourage Scientific, Technology and Innovation (S, T &I) production on immunobiologicals in Latin America & the Caribbean (LAC).
The IV International Symposium on Immunobiologicals was planned to serve as a hub for scientists, entrepreneurs and biotechnology companies and expedite the development of innovative solutions for the health of the population.
