SBUK is the premiere UK synthetic biology meeting, bringing together all flavours of synthetic biology to foster a cohesive, vibrant and multidisciplinary community that is inclusive, open to innovation, collaboration and supportive of young talent.

The University of Bristol hosts SBUK 2018, bringing a unique focus on synthetic biology approaches to biomolecular design and engineering.

The scientific programme will showcase some of the very best of the UK and international synthetic biologists.  Particular attention will be devoted to oral and poster presentations from early career scientists, with dedicated sessions for networking, and a vibrant social programme.


Topics in this meeting may be invited to submit to our journal, Biochemical Society Transactions, or other publication published by Portland Press, the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Biochemical Society.


Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.


Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
