Food Insecurity: Facing the Future with Innovation

This year, our Iowa Biotech Showcase & Conference (IBSC) had a record number of attendees and two days full of fantastic presentations, speakers, panelists, and networking opportunities!

Thank you to all of our speakers, coordinators, generous sponsors, and event attendees. This year's IBSC was made possible by committee and board members who contributed their time and talents to planning another successful event.

Special thank you to Ambassador Terry Branstad, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig, and Iowa Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Grant Menke for joining us to discuss Iowa's role in addressing global food insecurity.
