SynBio Fund - grants for open, innovative and interdisciplinary projects to engineer biology

last modified Oct 07, 2015 06:13 PM



The SynBio Fund will support innovative, open and interdisciplinary projects relevant to Synthetic Biology over 2015-16. Up to nine 6-month projects per year will receive £4k each, with an additional £1k awarded on completion for follow-on and outreach. The second round of applications closes on 23 November 2015.

The aim of the fund is to promote the development of Synthetic Biology as an interdisciplinary field at the University of Cambridge - to facilitate exchange between the biological and physical sciences, engineering and humanities, and the development of open technologies and responsible innovation in the context of Synthetic Biology.
