Led by Associate Professor Matthew Chang, the Synthetic Biology Summit Research Programme (SRP) unites synthetic biologists, microbiologists, clinicians, chemists and engineers to solve important medical problems using synthetic biology.

The programme will explore translational outcomes in various disease areas using the following synthetic biology tools: 1) microbial cell factories, 2) therapeutic cells, 3) synthetic bio-lixiviants, 4) mammalian synthetic biology, 5) biosensors, and 6) synthetic genomes. Through strategic partnerships with industry collaborators, the National Research Foundation and the Singapore Economic Development Board, the SRP will help to guide the commercialisation of synthetic biology in Singapore.
