Beautiful biotech: Sensegen Joins Conagen for presenting at the 2022 Built With Biology Global Conference

Discussions on how to get to market successfully with 100% true-to-nature flavors and fragrances made by biology

Bedford, Mass. and Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. (April 8, 2022) — Biotech innovator Conagen presents with its newly launched pipeline partner Sensegen, southern California’s taste, smell, and beauty business, at the Apr. 12-14, 2022 Built With Biology Global Conference in Oakland, California (formerly SynBioBeta).

The collaboration embodies the “Fieldtrip 2 the Future” message of how participating companies in the global conference are using biology to make the planet a better place.

Members of the media will be able to step into the shoes of a perfumer and flavorist, tasting and smelling products made from sustainable, 100% bio-based materials at Conagen’s booth #23. Fragrances include samples of fine fragrances to personal care and home care.

“Sensegen is an excellent  pipeline partner to collaborate with on product-focused ingredients, and symbolic of  how we are integrated for commercial success,” said Casey Lippmeier, PhD, vice president of innovation at Conagen.
