In May 2022 Bio-Manguinhos will promote the sixth edition of the traditional International Symposium on Immunobiologicals (ISI). The scientific event will include a scientific poster exhibition of unpublished works on vaccines, diagnostic reagents and biopharmaceuticals, as well as lectures, round tables and plenary presentations of selected works. The main objectives of the activities are the promotion of innovation, the generation of cutting-edge knowledge and networking among experts to accelerate the development of biotechnology solutions to public health problems.
This edition will be delivered in a hybrid format, with the program taking place both in a virtual platform and in person – always keeping in mind the security protocols against Covid-19. The event will once again feature the Innovation Hub, a space specially designed to stimulate collaboration and partnership between researchers and entrepreneurs interested in learning about the technologies and infrastructures for technological development available at Fiocruz and, at the same time, present their own solutions, products, and developments to other researchers, companies, and investors.
The 6th ISI is an international event, with the presence of renowned speakers, who will present innovative themes and discussions to stimulate technological development in biotechnology in Brazil and to stimulate production at the frontier of Science, Technology and Innovation on immunobiologicals in the Latin American and Caribbean region.
With such initiatives, Fiocruz, through Bio-Manguinhos, stimulates new approaches, processes and technologies, besides identifying talents and favoring the participation of researchers from other institutions in the country and abroad. By bringing together professionals from Fiocruz, reference institutes for teaching, research and development, government institutions, and industry, the event seeks to promote synergies for the consolidation of collaborative networks both nationally and internationally.
The event is aimed at students, researchers, investors, and all kinds of professionals involved in the immunobiological and related areas or public health, from institutions involved in the production and/or technological development of vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, or reagents for diagnosis, entrepreneurs, startups, investors, and funding agencies.
The scientific programme of the 2022 edition will largely be held in a virtual environment with the possibility of active participation, integrating the virtual tools with the face-to-face activities. During the three days of the event, the participants will be able to access the contents, watch the presentations, interact with the speakers, exhibitors and other participants.
In the months preceding the 6th ISI, workshops will be organized, pre-events in virtual format, to discuss critical issues for Bio-Manguinhos and for public health in Brazil.
