Designer Biology 8-10 September 2021
Designer biology: From proteins and cells to scaffolds and materials
The Designer Biology meeting brings together young and established scientists working in the fields of bioengineering, synthetic biology and biomaterials. In a friendly, inclusive and lively atmosphere, the attendees discuss different applications ranging from the engineering of proteins to the engineering of functionalized materials. While the larger umbrella used in these fields is similar, the specific aspects are different and we think that targeting different disciplines together in one meeting will strongly benefit the bioengineering community at large and give rise to synergies and opportunities for new collaborations.
After two successful events in the Designer Biology series (held in Vienna and Newcastle in 2017 and 2019, respectively), this year the meeting will be entirely virtual, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. While we will seriously miss having the opportunity to meet and discuss in person with the attendees, we believe that the virtual meeting will nonetheless be a great platform to support young scientists and spark new ideas and collaborations! The speaker list clearly shows that it is worth attending the Designer Biology '21 meeting. Don't miss the chance, register now!
