Our research program is focussed around six Application Domains
An understanding of socio-environmental needs and impacts is critical to the successful development and deployment of appropriate, acceptable and socially responsible SynBio solutions.
Environment and Biocontrol
Projects in this program of work will contribute to a world class capability in delivering environmental and biocontrol solutions based on SynBio technologies.
Health and Medicine
Projects in this program of work aim to design new synthetic biology tools and platforms that could further global health research.
Agriculture and Food
Synthetic Biology offers the potential to re-imagine the future of agriculture by accelerating the design of next generation yeast and crop production platforms that are tailored to meet specific needs.
Projects in this program of work will contribute to a world class SynBio capability in delivering production and manufacturing innovations in the fibres and chemicals space.
