Minister for Industry and Science Ed Husic will lead Australia’s presence at the BIO International Convention 2024, the world’s largest biotech event, showcasing Australian innovation in biotechnology and medical science.

From June 1 to 6, BIO2024 is set to attract over 20,000 participants and 7,000 companies from 84 countries.

Husic will lead Australia’s delegation, underscoring the nation’s robust capabilities in medical science and biotechnology.

During his visit, the Minister will engage with international partners to draw investment into Australian innovations, highlighting the country’s economic and research strengths.

He will emphasise the government’s commitment to fostering the biotechnology sector, positioning Australia as a global hub for advanced manufacturing and clinical trials.

“This year’s BIO International Convention 2024 presents another opportunity for Australian industry to connect with the world, asserting our position as a global leader in medical science, research, and biotechnology,” said Husic.

Australia ranks seventh globally in health and medical research, with leading therapeutic research in oncology, immunology, regenerative medicines, and nucleic acid therapeutics, including next-generation RNA-based treatments.

Husic’s meetings with global biotech companies will reinforce Australia’s dedication to research, development, and manufacturing.

In addition to his engagements in San Diego, Husic will visit San Francisco to promote Australia as a premier partner for battery technology development and critical technology investment.
