The School of Biotechnology, Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology-KIIT (Deemed to be University, Declared U/S 3 of UGC Act, 1956) is organizing the INSCR International Conference 2018 (IIC-2018) on a theme “Trends in Biotechnology for Innovations in Health & Environment” is an effort to bring together the key researchers from academia and industry to address the concepts, challenges and state of art methods & applications of the various biotechnological innovation in health and environmental sectors. It provides an ideal platform to discuss the progress and address the limitations of the methods for further improvements through brain storming and thought provoking sessions. Discussions on the ethical issues concerned and understanding the strengths and limitations of the different tools, would aid in expanding the knowledge in different systems. The major aim of the conference is to provide a forum for individuals and organizations with diverse professional expertise and geographic backgrounds to come together and discuss the most pressing environment and health issues of our time, disseminate innovative strategies for addressing these issues and provide sustainable and affordable alternatives. A three-day international meeting is proposed, consisting of workshops, platform presentations and students/young scientists presentations. Conference will incorporate symposia in the primary areas of Environmental Ecosystems, Microbial Diversity for Healthy Environments, Microbiome and human health, Management of Hazardous Waste and Pollutants and their impact on Human Health. The challenges faced with the design, delivery and off-target effects associated and the solutions offered to overcome these would be some of the key areas to be addressed. This meeting hopes to bring together all the brains from the wide spread fields for their effective contributions, these recent genome editing technologies could have on improving the lives of people across the globe.
