BrisSynBio strapline

BrisSynBio, a BBSRC / EPSRC funded Synthetic Biology Research Centre

BrisSynBio is a multi-disciplinary research centre that focuses on the biomolecular design and engineering aspects of synthetic biology. 

BrisSynBio is part of the Bristol BioDesign Institute. For more information, news and research highlights visit the Bristol BioDesign Institute pages.

Our overarching aims are to:

  • Improve understanding of biological assemblies and processes to points that allow the rational and predictable design and engineering of biological and bio-inspired systems;
  • Foster systematic, synthetic-biology approaches to the design and engineering of biological systems across scales from atoms and molecules to cells and tissues;
  • Train the next generation of scientists and engineers in these approaches;
  • Facilitate the translation of fundamental synthetic-biology research to industry and the clinic.
