Held at the University of Nottingham, the UK-JSR Genetics' 19th Technical Conference will take place on 16 September, 2008, and uniquely for this year, the conference has invited two competition-winning students, Claudia Richards and Dagmar Kapell, to present their research to dignitaries.
JSR Genetics chair Tim Rymer said: "JSR's Technical Conference is always a highlight and introducing these talented individuals to the industry will make it really special. They are knowledgeable, skilled, determined. Both have a tremendous amount to offer and we really are duty-bound to ensure that such potential isn't wasted."
Entitled '50 Years of Excellence in Breeding,' the conference will have a range of speakers, including Dr Huw Jones of the Genesis Faraday Partnership, former Marks & Spencer agricultural manager Rob Cumine and Belgian pig producer Wouter Sinnaeve.
