Cambridge Synthetic Biology Meetup
Join the meetup group for synthetic biology in Cambridge! We run two regular monthly events plus additional activities. Cafe Synthetique is held on the third Monday of each month as an informal evening of talks and discussion on the latest research in synthetic biology and related fields – from biosensors to gene editing to robot swarms. Science Makers brings low-cost, open hardware for science to Cambridge makespace with talks, hands-on making and co-working on the first Saturday of each month.
