Panel discussions will cover topics such as fueling the world through bioenergy, clinical trials and the exciting strides being made through bioscience in animal health.

“Our industry is moving rapidly in the direction of ‘One Health’ – bringing together expertise in plant, animal and human health to innovate solutions that will help us globally,” Johnson said. “Our summit ties directly to that theme, and we think those across our industry will leave energized to continue building on their work.”
