Time:  5:00PM - 8:00PM
Location:  Lobby


The emerging field of synthetic biology builds biotechnologies to meet societal challenges in areas like healthcare, energy and the environment. By making biology easier to engineer, the field also connects to human values around science and technology. This Conversations about Synthetic Biology event will bring diverse community members together with synthetic biologists to share knowledge, hopes and concerns about synthetic biology. We’d greatly welcome your views and perspectives.
The evening will have informal time for members of the public to mingle with synthetic biologists from Synberc, and learn about synthetic biology through some materials from The Museum of Science, Boston that we’ll have on hand. A few individuals with different perspectives about the field will speak briefly and then the discussion will open up to consider personal responses and ways to continue the conversation, if desired. The conversation will be co-moderated by Natalie Kuldell of MIT and David Sittenfeld of The Museum of Science, Boston.
