The Africa Biotech Summit is an initiative created by JR Biotek Foundation to bring together Africa’s present and future leaders and key stakeholders in Africa and the diaspora to discuss the state of Africa’s biotech sector and to propose more practical solutions that will contribute to the sustainable growth of Africa’s bioeconomy. Our inaugural African Diaspora Biotech Summit was held at the University of Cambridge on 4 April 2017 and we are excited to hold subsequent Africa Biotech Summit and conferences in Africa starting in 2019.
