What’s trending in biotech India?

“What’s trending in biotech India?” That was the theme of Bangalore Bio this year, said to be the India’s leading biotechnology event, where it showcased the industries like Bio Pharma, Bio Agri and Bio Services.

The answer is, quite a lot. The event was filled with most exciting and up-to-date global technologies and business solutions. For instance one of the spin-out companies from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore has introduced the first ever nucleic acid dye, with no DNA degradation, that’s safe and that has been developed from a natural source. That was was attention-grabbing for the visitors.

There was a lot of hope that India was catching up with the global bio revolution, especially in agri and fuels.

The conference presented a 360 degree view of the biotechnology industry trending in India, to help attendees fully understand today’s Indian marketplace globally and build engaging partnerships to benefit from the fast emerging opportunities in India.

Britain has a great presence too. Harriet Fear, CEO of One Nucleus, was at the UKTI pavilion with Dominic Jermey (both pictured above), along with a delegation from Manchester and elsewhere in Britain.

As fast as the Indian pharma sector is growing, it’s still a small world – I spotted a lot of the speakers coming to our conference bioConclave 2016 at the UKTI pavilion or elsewhere taking part in the UK delegation in Hyderabad and Bangalore.

Besides industry executives research heads, we saw a crowd of start-ups who presented their ideas and products. One of those big CEOs, Dr Kiran Mazumdar Shaw from Biocon, said, “There is a increasing pressure on western biotechnology companies to address affordable drug development and research in general has launched India into prominence as a preferred international research partner.”

That’s true, and it’s what my team and I hope to help with.
