We’re Staying Home & Refreshing Berlin! 🇩🇪

We’re staying on home soil for our next Refresh, so now’s your chance to kick it with the whole Labiotech team!

Berlin! The city where you can find startups, doener, techno, and your favorite Labiotech crew. You can also find an awesome biotech scene 😉 So, you’re invited to join us and the rest of the Berlin biotech gang for a relaxed meetup on our home turf on the 19th June 2018.

The theme and speakers will be announced very soon!

Get ready to meet some great people, listen to some awesome speakers, and enjoy some free beer. You will be able to find us at the BlueYard office looking super cool in our Labiotech t-shirts.

Thanks to BlueYard and Berlin Partner for being such cool partners and both NIBC and Scientist.com for supporting us 😉


With the recent FDA approval to market their molecular diagnostic test for lung infections in the US, Curetis is making their mark on the biotech scene. Achim Plum, CBO of Curetis will tell us more how the growing antimicrobial resistance could be fixed, how diagnostic is part of the solution and how the new spin-out Ares is advancing the understanding of the genetics of antimicrobial resistance. Exciting fireside chat ahead!

Coming all the way from the US of A (we like to think he’s coming just for us), we are excited to get the chance to chat with Peter Nell, VP, Head Strategy & Business Development at Casebia Therapeutics! Peter has spent the last couple of years setting up and growing a gene-editing biotech startup. Thanks for coming all this way Peter!


Look how cool this place is! This photo is from the BlueYard Conversation on the future of biology event in November 2017. You can see Philip in the corner 😉
