Cluster Meetings

Meetings at a Glance

What are Cluster Meetings?

SynBio’s Cluster Meetings are half day meetings where we bring together relevant industries, faculties, academics, governmental agencies, and students in an open forum to discuss the challenges and benefits of applying synthetic biology to different fields. Each cluster meeting is focused on a specific topic and we bring speakers from industries and academia to talk about their current work and challenges they are facing. With each cluster meeting, we hope to learn from each other and foster a collaborative community.

We hold Cluster Meetings throughout the year, below you will find details about past meetings. To participate in upcoming meetings, keep an eye out on our calendar or subscribe to our mailing list under the “Contact Us” tab. If you would like to suggest topics you are interested in hearing about, please contact us!
