Future Trends in the Bioeconomy and Changing Life Sciences Research Landscape
June 2, 2022 @ 1:20 pm - 3:45 pm EDT
The National Academies’ Board on Life Sciences is pleased to present two discussions – Bioeconomy of the Future and Changing Landscape of Life Science Research Laboratories – to explore critical and emerging issues with the bioeconomy and privately-sponsored basic life sciences research.
The life sciences research landscape is changing rapidly as new investments in the bioeconomy drive convergence among science and technology fields to develop new products and services, and as basic research laboratories are established by private investors.
The Bioeconomy of the Future will explore:
- Changes that have taken place since publication of the National Bioeconomy Blueprint (2012), Safeguarding the Bioeconomy (2020), and The Bio Revolution: Innovations Transforming Economies, Societies, and our Lives (2020)
- Immediate and near-term developments associated with the bioeconomy
- Future needs for realizing the full potential of the bioeconomy
- Outstanding needs for protecting and promoting the bioeconomy long-term
- Mary Maxon, Schmidt Futures
- Andrea Hodgson, Schmidt Futures
- Michael Chui, McKinsey & Company
The Changing Landscape of Life Sciences Research Laboratories will explore:
- Shifts in the landscape of life sciences research based on the emergence of research institutes funded by for-profit companies
- The benefits to the shifting life sciences research landscape
- Possible trade-offs related to life sciences research that are conducted at for-profit institutions
- Emerging trends in life science research landscape and how they relate to current and future public policy
- Future workforce needs and how education might change to support these new institutions
