On behalf of the Organizational board, we invite you as a participant at the 6th connecting conference entitled “Empowering human health together”, with international participation.


The conference will be held on 16th Nov 2023 in Grand Hotel in Zagreb.


The official language of the conference will be English.


At the conference, we will present the current challenges and solutions in the field of synthetic biology, next-generation sequencing (NGS), automated liquid handling workstations and sample management systems.


This year we are following our strategy to present the newest trends in life science, focusing on sequencing and genome editing. Next generation sequencing has become a most powerful tool and golden standard for genetic testing and research. Nevertheless, DNA synthesis plays an increasingly important role in new cell-based discoveries, Ab production and CAR-T. All of that for one common purpose – improvement of human health.
