The Synthetic Biology Research Centre at the University of Nottingham aims to pass on our expertise to a wider community through activities such as public talks, lab visits, school presentations, workshops, exhibitions and networking events.
By doing this we hope to:
- Share and promote the development of our research
- Raise awareness and interest in synthetic biology
- Make science education more accessible and interactive, with resources for schools, teachers and the public
- Encourage science in young people, as they make their career choices
iGEM, or the international Genetically Engineered Machine, is a student synthetic biology competition which aims to bring together young scientists from around the world, addressing global challenges through the engineering of biological parts.
