Café Synthetique is the monthly meetup for the Cambridge synthetic biology community with informal talks, discussion and pub snacks.


This months' theme will focus on Biomimicry and engineering, which is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. Biomimicry in manufacturing is the practice of designing products that simulate or co-opt processes that occur in nature.

We have two excellent speakers whose work focuses on the use of biomimicry and engineering.  

Free bar snacks and good conversation provided!
