Synthetic Biology in Cambridge

 

Recent developments have enabled the application of synthetic principles at levels of unprecedented complexity, such as re-engineering entire genomes and refactoring gene networks to pattern the fabric of developing organisms. We hear from two speakers at the cutting edge of these advances followed by networking over a buffet and wine reception.
Speakers: Dr Mark Isalan, Imperial College and Dr Tom Ellis, Imperial College

The event will be held at the St John's College Old Divinity Schools on St. John's Street on Monday 30 November 2015, 18:30 -21:00.

Synthetic Biology takes an engineering approach to the design and redesign of biological systems, forming a nucleus of exciting interdisciplinary activity that is shaping the future of molecular biology both in academia and industry.
