International Workshop on Control Engineering and Synthetic Biology


International Workshop on Control Engineering and Synthetic Biology - 17th and 18th July 2017, Royal Academy of Engineering – Prince Philip House, London, UK

Designing and implementing effective feedback control in living cells has the potential to dramatically change biotechnology and synthetic biology. However, before this potential is realised, a number of theoretical and practical challenges must be addressed, which lie at the interface between control engineering and synthetic biology.

This will be the topic of an International Workshop on Control Engineering and Synthetic Biology, which will be held on the 17th and 18th July 2017 at the Royal Academy of Engineering – Prince Philip House, London, UK. This workshop will discuss both the challenges and the opportunities that Synthetic Biology offers. A specific focus will be on the “next grand challenges” in the field of synthetic biology and how control engineering can address them. An exceptional group of speakers, world leaders in synthetic biology and control engineering, will present recent progress, identify challenges and share their vision of where synthetic biology is headed and how the control engineering community can contribute to delivering its promise.

This event is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) under projects EP/M002454/1 and EP/M002187/1.
