Huseyin is a PhD student under supervision of Victor de Lorenzo, at the Spanish National Center for Biotechnology, Madrid (CNB-CSIC). His research consists of several aspects of empowering and enhancing the model organism Pseudomonas putida, where his objective is to bring standards for the synthetic biology research of Pseudomonas putida and to make it a desirable biosensor platform for exploitation in the environmental and industrial applications.
MPI MARBURG, WEB OFFICER 2019
Stefano is a PhD Student in Hannes Link’s group at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology & LOEWE Research Center for Synthetic Microbiology (SYNMIKRO) in Marburg. His research is aimed at unravelling the dynamics of bacterial metabolism, blending systems and synthetic biology methods.
UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER, POLICY OFFICER 2019
Adam is a PhD student in the groups of Prof. Takano and Prof. Breitling in the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology of the University of Manchester. He works on the production of antibiotics in Streptomyces species by systems and synthetic biology approaches. Adam is interested in entrepreneurship in biotech, ethics and science communication.
UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER, INDUSTRY LIAISON OFFICER 2019
Jo is a postdoctoral researcher in the Goss group at the University of St Andrews, where she is working with Industry to use Synthetic Biology to produce industrially valuable small molecules. She also has a keen interest in using Synthetic Biology to transform waste plastic into value-added small molecules; directed evolution for biocatalysis; and ultra-high throughput assay development for biotechnology.
INSA TOULOUSE, EVENTS OFFICER 2019
Cléa is a PhD student in synthetic biology at the Laboratory of Biological Systems and Chemical Engineering (LISBP) in Toulouse. She works on the construction of a synthetic pathway for the conversion of lignocellulosic sugars into glycolic acid. Her research is focused on enzymatic and metabolic engineering to develop new biological production chains, alternative to conventional ones.
ETH ZÜRICH, COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER 2019
Daniel is a PhD student in Martin Fussenegger's group at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) of ETH Zurich. Using mammalian cells, he is building synthetic gene switches for the treatment strategies of the future. His interests lie in the impact of synthetic biology on research and health care as well as science communication.
