BioTEC 2020 was dedicated to Jaya, who passed away in October 2020. Jaya was an integral member of the BioTEC Executive Team and contributed significantly to conference growth through her work on the marketing team. Jaya's joy and enthusiasm shone through in all of her interactions, within the team and beyond, and she will be dearly missed.
