Evolving and Innovating: Centre for Engineering Biology

On Thursday 15 June the Centre for Engineering Biology launched to industry and funders

The audience were invited to hear first-hand about current research and to meet some key research staff

Innovating Research

The event included short presentations on how the centre is driving innovation in many markets such as industrial green chemistry, agriculture, the environment, and medicine and healthcare. All underpinned by AI for Engineering Biology and Responsible Research & Innovation.


World-Leading Facilities

Attendees had the opportunity to visit the world-leading Edinburgh Genome Foundry (the world’s largest and most automated platform for DNA assembly) and the EdinOmics research facility (for mass spectrometry, metabolomics and proteomics analysis).

These highly specialist facilities make a significant contribution to making Scotland the go-to destination to incubate and grow bioeconomy businesses to scale.


We seek to constantly evolve our research environment to allow the best ideas to thrive, push frontiers, deliver social and economic impact and drive sustainability.’
