Innovating research, policy and education in synthetic and systems biology
SynthSys is a virtual centre, embracing an extensive community of more than 200 researchers distributed across the University. Our research is broad and deep, addressing a diversity of scientific questions with wide ranging impacts. We carry out research in the areas of industrial biotechnology (including bioremediation and biofuels), plant science and medicine and healthcare. You can read more about our Centre here.
In October 2015, we opened a newly refurbished building as the physical hub for our new UK Centre for Mammalian Synthetic Biology funded by the BBSRC/EPSRC/MRC as part of the UK Research Councils' Synthetic Biology for Growth programme.
