We would like to invite you to the joint event of the BioPharma Cluster South Germany and the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM)!

With this event we would like to bridge the gap between basic university research in the field of RNA and industrial research and application. In addition, we would like to discuss opportunities and challenges in the manufacturing of New Biologic Modalities incl RNA therapeutics.
Moreover, we offer participants including young scientists the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with Executives of the BioPharma Cluster.
