Invitation sent by SynBio Powerhouse:
27 Sep, 13:30 – 17:00
Aalto Design Factory Stage
Betonimiehenkuja 5 C, Otaniemi, Espoo
The new BioGarage at Aalto Design Factory offers students, young researchers and everybody interested the opportunity to test wild ideas and experiment freely using synthetic biology and related technologies in a GMO-lab environment.
Open-minded and cross disciplinary science is key to unlocking the potential that nature has to offer. Engineering biology enables the sustainable use of waste streams and CO2 as a carbon building blocks for synthesis of materials, food, fuels, chemicals and medicines.
Join us to hear how grassroot science can foster innovation and start-up creation! Our inspiring keynote speakers are:
- Thomas Landrain, founder of the biogarage in Paris, La Pallaisse (https://lapaillasse.org/), and the Pili start-up (https://www.pili.bio/1/about-us).
- Leslie Mitchell from New York University, creator of Synthetic yeast 2.0 http://syntheticyeast.org/leslie-mitchell/
You will also have the opportunity to visit our lab space and see a live demonstration of DNA by this year’s iGEM teams.
