The networking event was a good place to meet a varied group of people, involved in research, startups, investments etc. The event was held at JFDI’s launch pad in Block 71 (famous for housing startups in Singapore).
The event had an open mic session in which many co-founders of startups showcased their companies and shared a few thoughts. This was followed by a Panel Discussion with the founders of Genome Editing. Numerous questions were brought forward by the audience on the technique of genome editing.
The session ended with free & easy networking.
