Synthetic Biology UK 2015
Think, develop, measure, make
Synthetic Biology is a field that has rapidly expanded. It relies on multidisciplinary approaches and delivers transdisciplinary advances that have the potential to redefine our understanding of the natural world and to significantly contribute to our society and economy.
The UK is a world leader in science and engineering, and Synthetic Biology has been identified as an important area for our continued success. Key to that success is a cohesive, vibrant and multidisciplinary community, open to collaboration, open to advances and driven to exceptional research with meaningful outcomes.
That cannot be delivered by a single research centre, single funding body or hosted by a single learned society.
The SynBio UK conference aims to showcase UK Synthetic Biology research and to create a focal point for the community, embracing its diversity and fostering its growth and its engagement with society.
Under the themes of Making, Measuring, Thinking and Developing, the aim of the conference is to bring together the Synthetic Biology community in all forms in the UK to capitalise on synergies, enabling the exploration of entirely new approaches to the systematic and safe engineering of biology.
