Cambridge University Synthetic Biology Society
The Cambridge University Synthetic Biology Society (CUSBS) aims to promote the field of synthetic biology (SynBio) amongst the student community and within schools in Cambridge. Particular focus will be given to its real-world applications and interdisciplinary nature. Expert speakers from different SynBio disciplines will be invited to give talks, and links to external SynBio events and networks will be developed. We aim to work closely with both the SynBio SRI and the Open Plant initiative, and strengthen their direct links with STEM students.
SRI Steering Committee
The Steering Committee spans the Schools of Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences and Technology in addition to organisations like the Centre for Science and Policy and Microsoft Research. They determine the direction and activities of the SRI, led by Co-Chairs Professor Jim Haseloff and Dr Jim Ajioka.
