Synthetic Biology: Advances and Critical Needs from a Biomaterials Viewpoint
August 19 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM IST
Synthetic biology has already revolutionized numerous fields through the creation of synthetic structures that mimic almost every aspect of nature. In particular, at the intersection of synthetic biology and biomaterials, researchers have been developing innovative approaches to improve sustainable manufacturing, detection, disease prevention, and therapy. This webinar will highlight such advances by four distinguished scientists developing synthetic platelets for hemorrhage control, transfusion medicine and wound healing applications as well as harnessing the synthetic potential of microbes to orchestrate the assembly of complex materials for textiles, bioremediation, therapeutic probiotics, and so much more! Come join this unique webinar at the intersection of synthetic biology and biomaterials science and see what the future of synthetic biology holds for improving medicine and manufacturing.
