Over the last decade, bonds between the physical and life sciences have strengthened; however, interactions between the physical and agri-sciences remain in their relative infancy.
Organised by Imperial College PhD students working at the interface between the physical and agri-sciences, the Agri Futures conference aims to showcase the latest technological developments in chemical biology from world-leading researchers in their fields.
Held in RSC's Burlington House, London, the conference will host five speakers from three key areas of chemical biology: bioinformatics, biophysics and proteomics.

Along with plenary talks, the conference will also host a debate involving a panel of high profile academics, policy makers and industry members from across the agrisciences sector.
