Meet our presenters. Throughout the conference, attendees will hear from industry thought leaders who will discuss various topics relevant to the Alabama bioscience community. From biopharma manufacturing experts, genomics subject matter experts, and funding experts to economic development leaders, our show would not be possible without the incredible support of our presenters who are joining us from around the Southeast as well as Texas, Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C.
