Early career researchers’ perspectives on synthetic biology

July 27, 2016 8:30 - 11:00 am


Synthetic biology has the potential to transform the industrial landscape across healthcare, sustainable energy, green chemistry, pharmaceuticals, novel materials and bioremediation.  One of synthetic biology’s fundamental principles is the application of iterative design/test/build cycles and plug-and-play capabilities to biological systems. Through these engineering design principles, synthetic biology has interdisciplinary collaboration at its heart.  Early career researchers from a number of backgrounds will explore synthetic biology and the impact that it can bring to all our lives, through a mix of short talks, interactive stands and laboratory tours.  

Please note this event in not in the main venue and we recommend delegates allow 20 minutes to travel to and from this session.
