Synthetic biology is being applied to gain insight into human health and disease and to transform medicine and healthcare.
Our Centre is building a capability in the design, construction and testing of synthetic components, integrated into the cellular host, to produce useful outputs in a robust and predictable manner.
We are developing in-house expertise in whole-cell modelling, the generation of tools for cell-engineering, computer-assisted design and the construction of DNA and high-throughput analysis of the resulting phenotype.
This approach will not only advance basic understanding of mammalian biology and pathology but also generate products and services for near-term commercial exploitation.
In parallel, we will develop and implement new understanding of the social and economic impact of this far-reaching technology to ensure its benefits to human and animal welfare.
