The emerging field of Synthetic Biology, the convergence of biology, engineering and computing, is seeing rapid growth of interest from scientists, investors, clinicians and politicians alike as they all see potential benefits from its translation into commercial application. The UK Government published a ‘Synthetic Biology Roadmap for the UK’ only as recently as 2012, yet the fast speed of advancement in the sector means it is already being updated and due for re-publication in early 2016. Speakers at this event will describe the policy, investment and application landscapes in synthetic biology and debate what future growth may look like.
