Biomaterials and Consumer Products (Sponsored by Mintz Levin)

Our ability to read, write, and rewrite DNA makes it possible to engineer all sorts of novel materials made by microbes and plants. Biomaterials design is a highway towards the discovery and realization of tailored polymers and materials to satisfy the specific requirements of many diverse applications. Learn about the people making tools for engineering biology along with insights related to the creation of new biomaterials from sustainable sources.

Recently, several companies have made advancements in engineering microbes for new applications. In this session, we will hear from companies engineering biology to make consumer products from clothing and textiles to personal care products and more. Explore the bio strategy of companies moving to more sustainable methods of manufacturing and hear about the latest entries into consumer markets.
