We explore all aspects of synthetic and systems biology in the broad thematic areas outlined below
Mammalian Synthetic Biology
Synthetic biology is being applied to gain insight into human health and disease and to transform medicine and healthcare.
Bio-based Manufacturing in Space
Can biology help us build towards a sustainable future for humans in space.
Synthetic and systems biology can help create more sustainable solutions to our planet's challenges.
Microbial Systems and AMR
Understanding how living systems work is essential if we are to better understand how cells function and why diseases occur.
Automation and Robotics
Low-cost automation tools, enhanced with the power of artificial intelligence and data-sharing protocols, can revolutionize biological research and development.
We can engineer plant cells to create greener and more sustainable platforms for manufacturing chemicals.
Models enable us to make sense of complex systems and to predict how they will behave in differing environments.
Responsible Research and Innovation
The engineering of mammalian systems, bringing together research in synthetic biology, epigenetics and stem cells, opens up novel questions for social scientific research and provides a unique opportunity to further the development of the concept of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
