Bridging the gap between Physical sciences & Agri-sciences research

Over the last decade, bonds between the physical and life sciences have strengthened; however, interactions between the physical and agri-sciences remain in their relative infancy. 

Organised by Imperial College PhD students working at the interface between the physical and agri-sciences, the Agri Futures conference aims to showcase the latest technological developments in chemical biology from world-leading researchers in their fields.

Held in Burlington House, London, the conference will host five speakers from three key areas of chemical biology: bioinformatics, biophysics and proteomics.
