The goal of MTBA is to establish a platform for biology-related scientific professionals in the United States and Taiwan to exchange ideas and promote dialogue between academia and industry. MTBA aims to facilitate communication and exchange of ideas across scientific communities primarily through, but not limited to, the annual Midwest Taiwanese Biotechnology Symposium (MTBS).
The MTBA is a professional organization initiated in the summer of 2017 by a group of young scientists across cities in the Midwest United States, including Ann Arbor (MI), Chicago (IL), Columbus (OH), Kansas City (MO), Kansas City (KS), Madison (WI), St. Louis (MO), Twin Cities (MN), Indianapolis and West Lafayette (IN). The concept was first initiated by the St. Louis chapter of NATEA and later elaborated to become a formal, independent organization. The goal of MTBA is to provide a platform for professionals to exchange information and promote dialogue in the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceutical, the medical science. MTBA is looking for active members who would like to join and organize events, including symposia, webinars, and regional meetings. Please contact us for more information.
