6th International Conference on CRISPR Technologies | AIChE

The 2023 International Conference on CRISPR Technologies will focus on the latest advances in the genome editing field, bringing together key stakeholders with aligned interests across the spheres of academia and industry. The program will feature talks across many facets of this field, including the optimization of safe and effective DNA, RNA, and epigenetic editing technologies; the continued discovery and optimization of naturally-occurring CRISPR and non-CRISPR enzymes; the development of precision technologies capable of generating nucleotide- or kilobase-scale edits; and overcoming barriers to realizing the full potential of each of these tools. 

Abstract Submission Deadline: August 31, 2023 
Early Bird Deadline: September 5, 2023

Grant Opportunity Available

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is supporting the 6th International Conference on CRISPR Technologies. We encourage U.S.-based students, post-docs and assistant professors to apply. If approved, your registration will be reimbursed.
