We are excited to announce the Inaugural Bristol BioDesign Institute Conference at the University of Bristol

The Bristol BioDesign Institute (BBI) is one of the University of Bristol’s seven specialist research institutes and brings together BrisSynBio, the SynBio Centre for Doctoral Training, industry, policy makers, and public engagement programs.

The BBI will be officially launched this year by hosting our first annual conference, opened by University of Bristol Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Hugh Brady. 

Dr Paul Race, University of Bristol, will give the opening plenary: Kill or cure | Repurposing bacterial adhesins for therapeutic payload delivery

Professor Katharina Landfester, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, will give the plenary presentation. Her research interests range from polymerization in miniemulsion, structure formation in nanoconfinements, characterization of physical properties in droplets, enzymatic reactions in heterophase, encapsulation of hydrophilic and hydrophobic components in nanocapsules, synthesis and characterization of functionalized nanoparticles/-capsules to uptake of nanoparticles in different cells and in vivo application.

In the evening we invite all delegates and members of the public to attend a lecture delivered by Professor Nadrian C. Seeman from the Department of Chemistry at New York University. Professor Seeman is renowned for inventing the field of DNA nanotechnology and recently received the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry. 

Prizes will be awarded for the best posters in the following categories:

  • Overall winner £100
  • PDRA runner-up £75
  • PhD runner-up £75
