In 2018, Dr. Irina Borodina founded BioPhero as a biotechnology spin-out from the Technical University of Denmark with the aim of commercializing a novel yeast fermentation technology for the production of safe insecticide replacements. But how did she together with a team of brilliant scientists turn the wonders of sex pheromones into a company that could positively benefit planetary and human health? Irina will take us through every step on the journey with BioPhero when she visits BII to give a Talk at the Square on the 13th of June.
