East African Collaborations in Practical Synthetic Biology Workshop
- Posted on 13 March, 2017
From the 15th-17th March 2017 SynbiCITE will attend a workshop to establish UK-East African collaborations in practical synthetic biology, taking place in Nairobi, Kenya. This will bring together researchers and policymakers from East Africa with academics and entrepreneurs from Imperial College London, University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh and the John Innes Centre. The workshop will explore potential E. African application areas for practical synthetic biology including disease detection, agri-technology, environment, industrial processes as well as policy, IP and commercialisation opportunities.
The key objectives of this workshop are:
- Develop programmes on synthetic biology research and training
- Identify practical applications for synthetic biology solutions and biotechnologies
- Establish networks and collaborations on synthetic biology between Eastern African & UK researchers
- Facilitate communication, information exchange and education on synthetic biology
This is a unique and important opportunity for collaboration and we look forward to updating you on the insights to be generated from this meeting.
