Synthetic Biology for Future Health 13–15 March 2023 [abstracts due 17 Jan]

Hi All

This meeting is highly recommended! It is free to join virtually and if you can come to the UK then even better!

Synthetic Biology for Future Health: towards improving human health with synthetic biology technologies

13–15 March 2023
Wellcome Genome Campus, UK and Virtual

Summary is below! My lab are coordinating with Tao Uttamapinant & team (inc Aimorn Homchan who many of you know from Reclone meetings) to have a follow up talk and discussion here in Cambridge on RPA/CRISPR diagnostics after the meeting. We’ll also try to record that or offer virtual participation options if we can.



Synthetic biology has been widely championed worldwide as a driving force for the ‘bioeconomy’. This new conference will showcase the latest research within synthetic biology that impacts human health. The conference will present how technologies from synthetic biology are delivering innovations across clinical health applications and leading towards improved global health.

The meeting will bring together researchers working on synthetic biology, biotechnology, genomics and medical sciences, along with industry members from pharma and biotech companies, and investors and funders in this growing research area. It will address how the technologies coming out of synthetic biology impact both advanced healthcare in developed countries (e.g. personalised medicines, T-cell therapies) and global wide-impact, such as very low-cost diagnostics and self-replicating living therapies. In addition, the conference aims to provide a reflection on where resources and work are succeeding and where more effort needs to be placed to ensure equitable global outcomes.

This conference will be a hybrid meeting – with onsite or virtual attendance. We welcome abstracts on all major themes of this meeting as oral or poster presentations.
