Novel oncology microbiome and psychiatric disorder therapeutics backed by a range of discovery & development tools from AI to microgravity – all featured on the swisstech pavilion at BIO 2022 in San Diego, June 13-16

ZURICH, May 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Swiss life science innovation will again be on display at the BIO 2022 convention in San Diego. Switzerland Global Enterprise and Presence Switzerland will showcase 14 leading Swiss biotech stars on the swisstech pavilion demonstrating why Switzerland has topped the Global Index for Innovation for the last decade.

“Limitless” Swiss Biotech Innovation

Matching the conference's 'LIMITLESS' theme, the breadth and depth of innovation is astonishing, covering all aspects of the drug discovery and development chain – from omics data crunching to AI-driven trial design. On the swisstech pavilion there will also be a range of first-in-class therapeutic pioneers, covering all the already hot and rapidly warming up areas – tumor specific antibodies and cancer gene therapies, microbiome biotherapeutics, mitochondrial transplantation, psychiatrics... Visitors will be able to meet the company leaders, learn about the science and discuss potential collaborations.

'We are delighted to be back at BIO. Life science innovation is in our DNA in Switzerland. Not only are we home to global pharma powerhouses such as Roche and Novartis, Switzerland also has one of the world's leading ecosystems.
