BioENGINE Africa Curriculum Sprint - develop content for diagnostics development using synthetic biology
7-8 March 2022, 10:00 GMT until late GMT
Join us via Zoom or in person at Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Room 275D - MDL2 (Bay D), Imperial College London
What is it? BioENGINE is a curriculum being developed by researchers in UK, Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, South Africa and Ethiopia that aims to equip researchers across disciplines with essential skills to meet real-world challenges through adoption of engineering approaches such as design, build and test cycles to the development of diagnostics for local priorities in human, animal, plant and environmental health. It focuses on building knowledge alongside practical skills that can be taught in any molecular biology lab with minimal reagents.
How can I help? We’re looking for content authors and reviewers to develop 20 modules that form a coherent curriculum for biosensor development using synthetic biology but can also be broken apart into standalone training content. If you’re not a synthetic biologist, no problem! We need copy editors, people who are good at graphic design, video editors and more.
What is a curriculum sprint? The BioENGINE team is getting together to produce as much content as we can in the course of two intensive and focused days of hybrid in-person and online meetings. You are very welcome to join us! There will be work sessions, feedback sessions and some synbio socialising interspersed. We hope to have the basic course ready to go by the end of the two days, although more content will be added on an ongoing basis.
