The Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC) Nottingham

What we do at the SBRC Nottingham:

  • Create technologies that deliver 'Net-Zero' environmentally friendly and sustainable circular economies.
  • Use engineering biology approaches to tailor bacteria to become productive mini-factories that produce chemicals from greenhouse gases.
  • Develop sustainable technology that replaces our need of fossil fuels to provide us with chemicals and fuels.
  • Foster industrial application of climate-protecting technologies through alumni start-up companies and global pioneers in industrial gas fermentation.
  • Integrate Responsible Research and Innovation into all that we do to ensure that we engage widely to address societal needs in appropriate and inclusive ways.

We have:

  • World-leading expertise in microbial synthetic biology and metabolic engineering.
  • World-leading lab-scale microbial gas fermentation facilities
  • Bespoke robotics systems for high-throughput genome engineering studies.
  • Numerous links and collaborations internationally with academia and industry.
  • A team of over 80 post graduate and post doctorate researchers working across many bacteria chassis types and integrated research areas.

 

The SBRC Nottingham also works closely with the BBSRC funded NIBB:
