Join us Oct. 7 for the release of our new report, Leveraging Synthetic Biology’s Promise and Managing Potential Risk: Are We Getting It Right? Panelists will discuss how synthetic biology applications would be regulated by the U.S. Coordinated Framework, how this would affect the market pathway of these applications and whether the existing framework will protect human health and the environment.
VIDEO ADDED: A report from the Synthetic Biology Project looks at how the UN's Nagoya Protocol may affect U.S. researchers working in the field of synthetic biology.
Please join us for the release of our 2013 national poll surveying the public's attitudes towards synthetic biology.
Please join us for a panel discussion about how the media in the United States and Europe covers synthetic biology.
A workshop hosted by the Synthetic Biology Project, MIT Program on Emerging Technologies and EPA to determine the data needs and testing methods for the environmental release of synthetically designed algae and to assess the ecological effects and risks of synthetic organisms.
The Wilson Center on June 29 hosted a workshop to examine the environmental implications of synthetic biology, bringing together experts from multiple scientific fields, industry, and public interest groups.
View the Synthetic Biology Project's April 18 panel discussion of new report from 113 NGOs calling for officials to observe the precautionary principle in regulating synthetic biology, including a moratorium on commercial uses.
Join us to discuss how well we have managed the risks associated with advances like nanotechnology and synthetic biology.
Invited panelists will discuss the science behind synthetic biology, the risks this emerging technology poses to the environment and human health, as well as the socio-economic issues arising from a new “bio-economy” enabled by synthetic biology.
A workshop was held to test a Comprehensive Environmental Assessment framework for its ability to identify important research questions to support future ecological risk assessments of synthetic biology applications, using a case study of cyanobacteria engineered to produce industrial products.
