SynBioFund Projects

The SynBio Fund supported innovative, open and interdisciplinary projects relevant to Synthetic Biology over 2015-16. Eighteen 6-month projects received £4k each, with an additional £1k awarded on completion for follow-on and outreach. The aim of the fund was 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.
