Innovation, education & collaboration
Watch SynbiCITE's new film to get an insight into the potential that synthetic biology offers us all.
Synthetic biology is unlocking significant new opportunities for industries ranging from life sciences and specialty chemicals to bioenergy and waste remediation. By facilitating the creation of new tools and techniques, synbio has the potential to reshape many technologies to affect our lives positively and to reduce the impact that we have on our planet. Synbio is the engineering of biology and it’s already helping to make many businesses more effective, more productive and more environmentally friendly.
SynbiCITE has created a globally renowned national resource of interacting partners from academia, industry and business across the UK which accelerates the commercialisation of world-class science and the emerging technologies encompassed by synthetic biology and engineering biology into new products, tools, processes and services.
We partner with some of the world’s most forward-thinking organisations
We support our partners through events and training programmes including problems-solutions brokerage meetings. We provide funding of development projects including seed funding of Proof of Concept projects and follow-on funding of longer, larger projects for the development of prototypes and taking these on to pilot production scale manufacturing.View our network
