The three-day BIB 2016 is scheduled for February 9-11, 2016, at Hotel Lalit Ashok, in Bangalore.
The theme for this most-anticipated upcoming biotech event has been identified as, ‘'What's Trending in Biotech India'.
In her address, Dr Kiran spoke about the happening trends in the biotech space.
"BIB 2016 is going to be very exciting and encouraging because of the trends that we are seeing in the biotech. Trends, not just in our country, but worldwide. In India, it is very clear that biotechnology now is a rapidly growing sector. Through the ‘Make-in-India' campaign, India is beginning to focus on biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and medical device areas which are becoming trend setters," she pointed.
She believes that India will play an important role in biotechnology.
