Leadership Excellence Accelerator Programme (LEAP)

An intensive year-long non-residential Fellowship Programme

Each year about twenty Fellows – emerging leaders working in diverse areas of biotechnology – are selected to participate.

LEAP envisions catalysing a next generation of leaders in synthetic biology by providing the environment to learn skills for engaging a broad range of stakeholders in the development of the field with a strong ethical foundation for the future.

LEAP does this by:

  • Investing in the individuals who will ultimately shape and govern this diverse, growing and globally distributed technology.
  • Providing them with new tools and networks essential to achieving their visions for promoting innovation responsibly in practice.
  • Acting as a sustaining nexus of resources and support as leaders assume their roles.


Applications are not yet open but we’ll announce when applications open via Twitter and on this website so stay in touch.
