Oxford Global are proud to present the Synthetic Biology USA Congress taking place on 10-11 May 2018 in Boston, USA. Synthetic biology is a rapidly expanding field with the potential to provide solutions to a number of humanity’s most difficult medical problems. In brief, synthetic biology seeks to (i) design and construct biological components and systems that do not exist in nature and (ii) re-design and build existing biological systems. Recent breakthroughs, including effective cancer treatments, biosensors and microbiome therapies attest to the power and value of such research. This brand new 2-day conference brings together some of the world’s leading researchers to address the opportunities and challenges within recent synthetic biology research. On day one, our tool development stream will highlight recent foundational accomplishments, offering insights into CRISPR-based research, package and vector engineering, genetic circuits and microbiomes. On day two, the applications stream will explore the diverse biomedical applications of these technologies for therapy and diagnostics. Over 20 presentations dedicated to advances in Synthetic Biology explaining recent tool developments as well as their therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Featuring sessions focusing on: - CRISPR-based Synthetic Biology tools - Genetic Circuits and Regulation - Developments in DNA Assembly - Viral Vector Engineering for Gene Therapy - Microbiomes - In Vivo Biosensors View Agenda here: http://bit.ly/2AC5ZSb Co-located with the 2nd Annual Genome Editing USA Congress and the 2nd Annual Advances in Transgenic Technology USA Congress Free Pre Congress Live Webinars: Advances in DNA Assembly Tools Huimin Zhao, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Illinois Register for free today: http://bit.ly/2zEhTMb Multiplex genetic techniques for characterizing and engineering microbes in more or less complex environments Adam Arkin, Professor of Bioengineering, University of California, Berkeley Register for free today: http://bit.ly/2zyD2Kd For further information, prices and discounts please email a.fernandez@oxfordglobal.co.uk
