Save the date for the sixth annual edition of Canada SynBio happening on October 7-9, 2024 in Toronto

Canada SynBio 2024 Conference - #SynBio2024 - is Canada’s premier engineering biology event and will take place in Toronto on October 7-9, 2024


This one-of-a-kind conference brings together national and international leaders in the field of engineering biology to foster inter-sector partnerships and contribute to establishing Canada as a global powerhouse in the bioeconomy.


This year's conference program will feature a wide range of topics, including cellular agriculture, circular economy, biomanufacturing, ethical and regulatory frameworks, training, and health innovations. Additionally, attendees will have the chance to engage in interactive workshops and networking events.


Ontario Genomics hosted the inaugural annual national Canada SynBio Conference in 2018 with the vision of harnessing the collective knowledge, experience and creativity of stakeholders from all segments of the bioeconomy to advance Canada’s position as a global leader in the field of Engineering Biology.

Past topics have included:

• CAR-T and Gene Editing

• Cannabinoid Biosynthesis 

• Agriculture and New Crop Development

• Engineering Biology to reduce our Carbon Footprint

• Investor Perspectives on the Field

This conference, now in its fifth year, focuses on bringing together researchers, industry, and government to showcase the successes and opportunities of engineering biology in Canada and the world. 

As the global bio-revolution accelerates around us and Canada embarks on a reflection of a Canadian genomics strategy, our goal is to continue to foster the connections, networks, and communities that will advance a common vision and Canada’s position as a leader in engineering biology.
