CAMBRIDGE, England, November 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Eagle Genomics, a pioneer in the application of network science to biology, announced that its CEO, Anthony finbow, will speak at the special conference of the UNFCCC Global Innovation Hub COP26 session organized by EIT Food at 4:00 p.m. GMT today, titled: “How to meet the main challenges in terms of health and nutrition at less than 1.5 °? “ The Global Innovation Hub on Health & Nutrition will also feature speakers and leaders from the global sustainable agrifood ecosystem, including Saskia Nuijten, Director of Public Engagement and Communications, EIT Food; Jane liu, editor-in-chief, FoodUnfolded®; among other speakers from the World Economic Forum, Rabobank, Bayer, Agoro Carbon Alliance, WWF and FAO.
Anthony finbow, CEO of Eagle Genomics, said: “Life is a network. With future technologies, we are starting to build a network of understanding that sees life as a more complex system than previously thought. This includes our understanding of the microbiome, which has the potential. to transform food value chains and consumption patterns. At Eagle Genomics, we believe it holds the key to solving major global challenges. Understanding the microbiomes of soils, plants, animals and humans, and how they interact with their diverse hosts, could help us dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of the food industry while meeting global health and nutrition needs – helping us better understand what we eat. Unfortunately, the biodiversity of the microbiome is under threat by anthropocenic activity, including some agricultural practices, as well as by ongoing climate change – although due to the small size of n microorganisms, we can only perceive this destruction with the naked eye.
To fully understand how such microscopic life works within its infinitely complex ecosystem, we need to network the science of the microbiome. In this way, our AI-augmented knowledge discovery platform, e[datascientist]™, contributes to the digital reinvention of R&D in life sciences in many sectors, from AgBio to Food, including Health, Personal Care and Beauty, by helping to develop sustainable solutions while freeing up significant economic potential. “
Eagle Genomics is an EIT Food RisingFoodStar, was recently listed as Hello Tomorrow Deep Tech Pioneer and won the ‘AI Champion’ award at the Business Weekly Awards 2021 in the UK. Finbow has a number of advisory roles in the UK, including that of Vice-Chair of the Genomics Advisory Board of the BioIndustry Association (BIA), as well as leading the Emerging Technologies component of the Microbiome Innovation Network of the knowledge transfer network (KTN).
The panel session will take place from 4:00 p.m. – 4:50 p.m. GMT / 11 – 11:50 a.m. Eastern United States Monday 8e November and is available to watch on YouTube Live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7futrdJ7Unk
