Translating Technology, Transcending IndustrialisationView all sessions
Synthetic biology has the potential to impact many industrial sectors, including healthcare, manufacturing, energy, and agriculture, and could create new products and markets. How will the ability to design biology transform these industries, how will it disrupt them, and how can innovations in the lab be translated to the commercial sphere most effectively? Does synthetic biology present novel translation challenges compared to other technology fields, or can we use existing models of public and private support? This session will consider these issues with voices from academia, industry, and government.
