Building brigdes in Synthetic Biology:
BrisSynBio meets MaxSynBio
Joint workshop of the UK's and Germany's most important research consortia in Synthetic Biology.
February 08, 2017
In September 2015 Prof. Stephen Mann of the University of Bristol was invited by MaxSynBio as a guest speaker to the 1st MaxSynBio Symposium which was held at the Max Planck Institute in Potsdam. Stephen Mann is a member of the research network BrisSynBio. At this meeting it was discovered that BrisSynBio and MaxSynBio have a lot in common and that we should get into contact in order to elucidate further potential collaborations. So the idea of a joint workshop was born. At the same time, Dr. Dora Tang, formerly also member of BrisSynbio had successfully applied for a position as a junior group leader in MaxSynBio. The transition of Dora Tang from Bristol to the MaxSynBio-member institute in Dresden strenghened the link between British and German research network further.
Now as a member of MaxSynBio, Dora Tang engaged in the organisation of the joint workshop in collaboration with Dr. Tom Gorochowski, a fellow junior group leader of BrisSynBio. Both are assisted by the coordination offices of BrisSynBio and MaxSynBio, Dr. Kathleen Sedgley and Dr. Jakob Schweizer. This organisational committee is Together with a fellow junior group leader of BrisSynBio is presided by Prof. Stephen Mann (BrisSynBio) as chair Prof. Kai Sundmacher (MaxSynBio) as co-chair.
