Seminars & Webinars: Synthetic Biology
The Algae Biomass Summit was the largest algae conference in the world. This is where leading producers of algae products went to network with industry suppliers and technology providers, where project developers conversed with utility executives, and where researchers and technology developers rubbed elbows with venture capitalists. B&C was a proud sponsor. B&C Senior Chemist Richard E. Engler chaired "Legal, IP, and Regulatory Challenges and Opportunities" on Tuesday, October 25, 2016.
The theme of the 252nd American Chemical Society National Meeting was “Chemistry of the People, by the People, for the People.” B&C Managing Partner Lynn L. Bergeson presented “Genetic Engineering, Chemistry, and Consumers” on August 22.
The International Bar Association 4th Mediterranean Conference will focus on Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security in the Mediterranean Region. B&C Managing Partner Lynn L. Bergeson will present “Modern Agriculture and Technology” on June 6. For a copy of Ms. Bergeson's presentation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosted by the Wilson Center. Panelists included Lynn L. Bergeson discussed how synthetic biology applications would be regulated by the U.S. Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology, how this would affect the market pathway of these applications and whether the existing framework will protect human health and the environment.

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. and affiliate The Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG) were proud sponsors. The Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference Series has become one of the largest gatherings of Advanced Biofuels and Renewable Chemicals and Biomaterials Operating Company CEOs and senior executives, strategic partners, financiers, equity analysts, policymakers and industry suppliers in the Advanced Biofuels & Renewable Chemicals and Biomaterials industries in North America. ABLC NEXT featured: The Store of the Future right inside the conference event - where you could have seen, heard, touched and tasted the new fuels, products and biomaterials that are coming to shelves and pumps right now - and many that are coming in the very near future; fresh faces illuminating the hottest topics in the industry - - the new superdiesels, ethanols and jet fuels, specialty chemicals & nutraceuticals, magic microbes & catalysts, plastics, nylons and biomaterials. Hot export markets and partnership opportunities abroad. Biogas and natural gas. Carbon Capture and Re-Use. Bolt-ons and retrofits and co-locations. Kathleen M. Roberts, Executive Director of BRAG, spoke on the how the results of the November election might impact the regulatory landscape for the biobased chemical community. Click here for more information.
