SAVE THE DATE! BDebate: Impact of Synthetic Biology on the future of medicine

CosmoCaixa, Barcelona, Spain

This conference on synthetic biology is focused on medical applications on gene editing technologies. Our capacity to engineer genomes has increased enormously, and this advancement is impacting science and society. Synthetic Biology drives to a new era in a wide variety of research fields ranging from sustainable energy, food production, biomaterials, better understanding human biology, and development of novel therapies. Engineering of life is changing the medicine of the future.

We will create a forum to foster discussion between top scientists but also engage industry and society, to promote scientific advancement and its sustainable translation into economic and health benefits for society.
