Synthetic Biology & Sustainability (ASBE VI Satellite Event)
Registration for ASBE VI conference is still open. Register here!
Sustainability is a topic close to the heart of synthetic biology. We aim to co-design and build together with nature and tackle real world problems. In this satellite event to the 6th Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe (ASBE VI) conference EUSynBioS, SynBioUKand SINERGY will host two stellar panel discussions with synbio experts from the academia and industry, who will help us answer the following question: How can we make Synthetic Biology a part of a more sustainable future?
Our academic and industry round table discussion includes the following esteemed panelists:
- Victor de Lorenzo (Centro Nacional de Biotecnología)
- Lynn J. Rothschild (NASA Ames Research Center)
- Stephen Wallace (University of Edinburgh)
- Nicola Patron (Earlham Institute)
- Liz Flecher (Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre)
- Morgan Richards (ValleyDAO)
Registration is free and open to everyone.
Train travel can be arranged for students and ECRs attending this event. For more information contact [email protected] with your starting destination.
