Joanna Applequist is keynote speaker at the Bioethics and Biolegistation Mini-Symposium

On the 29th May, Valea’s European Patent Attorney Joanna Applequist is going to be a keynote speaker at the Bioethics and Biolegislation Mini-Symposium organized by iGEM Stockholm. Joanna will give an introduction to intellectual property and provide a list of dos and don’ts for inventors who want to secure intellectual property rights for their technology.  

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to education and competition, the advancement of synthetic biology, and the development of an open community and collaboration. The iGEM Competition - an international competition for students interested in the field of synthetic biology – gathers over 5000 students across the globe to help the world and solve problems. 

The iGEM Stockholm team is composed of 19 talented and multicultural students from Karolinska Institutet, The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Stockholm University. The students work together to develop a novel biotechnological idea over the course of a year and will represent Stockholm at the competition final in Boston, USA.

We thank iGEM Stockholm for the opportunity to participate in this event and wish the team the best of luck in the competition!
