NIH Cancer Research and Synthetic Biology Workshop
Synthetic biology approaches are rapidly advancing and may hold the key to addressing some of the most critical cancer research questions.
NIH is hosting a 3-day workshop, "New Applications of Synthetic Biology to Cancer Research Challenges: 2020 Virtual Jumpstart" on October 26, 28, and 30. This series of virtual meetings will explore opportunities for connecting cancer research with the field of synthetic biology.
Representatives from both the research and clinical communities across cancer and synthetic biology will look at recent advances and examine new ways these diverse fields might collaborate to advance our knowledge of cancer research.
Those working across the continuum of cancer research, synthetic biology, and complementary fields, including data science, are encouraged to apply. Applications are due by August 31.
Applicants who demonstrate a collaborative spirit and represent a variety of disciplines, backgrounds, and approaches will be selected to participate. Participants will have the opportunity to form new partnerships with investigators from different fields with the goal of translating novel ideas into realizable research projects. Applicants must be available to participate in the full series of meetings (all day Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
A pre-meeting information session will be held on August 25, 2020, from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. ET, to provide attendees with a workshop preview. Register for the information session to learn more.
