2017 MIT Startup Workshop - Synthetic Biology & New Materials

Synthetic Biology & New Materials
September 12, 2017

Meeting Opportunity, Presented by MIT Startup Exchange

How will synthetic biology and new materials change the way we manufacture key products such as pharmaceuticals, food, electronics and consumer goods? What new tools are now available? What new applications are opening up? How should corporations deploy this technology to stay ahead? What role is synthetic technology already playing in our lives? What advances will we see over the next few years? Synthetic biology is no longer only a specialty research area, it is rapidly going mainstream. Key industries are starting to depend on its key promises to change the relationship between technology and nature. Biological breakthroughs, analytics and material science innovation, together, are already radically changing the properties of things we knew as given, enabling us to grow rather than manufacture better products, starting with yeast and now rapidly moving up the food chain of biological building blocks.

Join the MIT Startup Exchange, MIT Industrial Liaison Program, MIT faculty, MIT-connected startups, investors, and corporate innovators on Tuesday, 12 September, 2017, to explore how synthetic technology is shaping society, business, and life as we know it. The target audience is the MIT innovation ecosystem, including faculty, students, startups, and ILP member companies. We have reserved 10 seats for MIT-connected startup founders who can apply for a Lightning Talk. This event should attract startups from the following clusters/areas: biotech, advanced manufacturing, nanotech & new materials, healthcare, ICT, sensors, AI, foodtech and beyond.
