On November 6th, Lallemand sponsored and participated to the 5th annual McGill inter-disciplinary biotechnology symposium designed at bridging the gap between industry and academia. The conference titled Revolutionizing Biotechnology: Stimulating Innovation through Collaboration was a unique platform for Lallemand to share knowledge and ideas about the use of yeast in biotechnology with students, professors and other invited experts that had come to present results of cutting-edge research and innovative technologies in that field.
The conference was also an opportunity for graduate students to present the results of their research during porter sessions. Jenna Ries, a student who is doing an internship at Lallemand Health Solutions also presented her results on the Development of a Novel Method for Rapid Pathogen Detection in Probiotic Commercial Products (see picture).
Overall it was a great networking activity, as many students and Professors showed interest in our presentation which talked about Biotechnology related R&D projects at Lallemand – Focusing on Yeast
