The 5th Annual Synthetic Biology Symposium (June 11-12, 2023) aims to bring the research community together to celebrate Canadian progress in this exciting and fast-growing field. The goal of this event it to promote collaborations and the exchange of ideas between synthetic biology research groups in Canada.


This event provides a forum for our trainees to develop their skills in the science and business of synthetic biology. Trainees are invited to attend tutorial workshops, participate in discussion of synthetic biology training programs, to present their work through oral and poster presentations, and to network with other synbio researchers.


Keynote Speakers: Dr. Tara L. Deans, Associate Professor, University of Utah and Dr. Carl de Boer, Assistant Professor, The University of British Columbia
