Genoforum – Come and meet the Genopolians!


Welcome to the Genoforum - an afternoon open to all to showcase the talents of the Genopolians. On the program will be short lively pitches on the stage of the Genocentre amphitheater with cocktail breaks in the hall where the public can meet Genopole partners and companies on their stands.
 

An afternoon to discover, meet, and simply enjoy yourself. Genopole will start by introducing three new additions to the cluster: ABCell Bio, Acubens and Glowee. Then, it will be up to Xentech, Algama, Santen and Novacyt to tell their amazing success stories in just three minutes each.
Researchers who find... can be found at Genopole! The spotlight will be on the amazing record of scientific and medical advances of Genethon, SABNP, IntegraGen, I-Stem and the Genomics Institute, gathered at a round-table hosted by the scientific journalist Fabrice Papillon.
Genofum will also give the floor to students! Two postdoctoral researchers will have 180 seconds to talk about their experience abroad within the framework of a training course subsidized by the Fondagen grant, a joint Genopole-Amgen foundation. We will also be welcoming a prestigious guest who will talk at the end of the afternoon... So watch this space!
