EUSynBioS strives to support young synthetic biology researchers in Europe through academic and industrial collaboration. We aim to sponsor professional development events, create internship and mentoring opportunities for our members, and collaborate with related associations and communities all over the world.
The Society for Biological Engineering (SBE), an AIChE Technological Community, is a global organization of leading engineers and scientists dedicated to advancing the integration of biology with engineering. SBE is dedicated to promoting the integration of biology with engineering and realize its benefits through bioprocessing, biomedical and biomolecular applications.
The Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center (Synberc) is a multi-institution research effort to lay the foundation for the emerging field of synthetic biology. Synberc’s vision is to catalyze biology as an engineering discipline by developing the foundational understanding and technologies to allow researchers to design and build standardized, integrated biological systems to accomplish many particular tasks. In essence, we are making biology easier to engineer.
The ICLS Synthetic Biology Project aimed to organize and participate in a series of meetings in order to address the following: practical issues of implementing the codes; the creation of a ‘seal of approval’ for those implementing the codes; how to promote universal adoption of the codes globally; how to expand the concept of the codes to others involved in synthetic biology, such as academics, citizen scientists and corporations with in-house synthetic biology capabilities; whether existing legislation was sufficient to ensure that only safe applications of synthetic biology receive product approval; and whether there was a need for a global forum to the regular discussion of these issues, coordination of responses to them and horizon scanning to ensure that newly emerging issues receive timely and appropriate consideration and action.
The Engineering Biology Research Consortium, or EBRC, aims to be the leading organization bringing together an inclusive community committed to advancing biological engineering to address national and global needs. It is comprised of academic members from over two dozen U.S. universities and biotechnology firms ranging from start-ups to multinational conglomorate companies.
