Algae farms that produce biofuel, bacteria that clean up environmental pollutants and cell-based medical devices that monitor our health status and correct imbalances – these are just some of the possible applications of synthetic biology. Synthetic biology – like other breakthrough technologies – has the potential to offer new solutions for society’s challenges. But it also raises concerns about safety and ethical implications.

How will synthetic biology transform – medicine? – the environment? – industry? – society? – our concept of life?

The Forum for Genetic Research and LS2 cordially invite you to explore these questions together with young scientists at a round-table discussion. With Jan Roelof van der Meer (University of Lausanne) and the EPFL iGEM 2015 team (starting at 14.00h).

The round table discussion will be preceded by BIO•FICTION@Lausanne, featuring a selection of short films from the BIO•FICTION Science, Art and Film Festival (starting at 12.30h).
