Advancing synthetic cell research for greener technologies
The European Synthetic Cell Initiative (SynCellEU) is a network of excellent European research laboratories, institutions and companies, coordinated by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands, that have joined forces to collaborate on synthetic cell research and accelerate its translation into technology.
We believe that synthetic cell research will enable the development of nature-inspired technologies that can contribute to a healthier and greener future.
Synthetic cell research
Research in the spotlight
Cells are so complex that the challenge of building synthetic cells cannot be met by a single research lab. Therefore, one of our main goals is to foster collaboration among scientists in synthetic cell research. In this section, we highlight recent collaborations in this area.
Case study: Yash and Jacqueline
Yash Jawale and Jacqueline De Lora are working together on spindle assembly inside GUVs using acoustic vibrations. They tell us more about this collaboration and how it could advance their respective research. Read more
Meet the community
Ángel and his group, the Biocomputation Lab, are combining their knowledge of computer science and synthetic biology to design biological computers, devices built from biological tools to process information. Read more
New independent group leader in Aachen, Germany, Laura seeks to understand what it takes to bring matter to life and aims to create life-like properties in materials. Read more
Join the community
By joining the synthetic cell community you can expand your network: you can connect with research institutions and labs all over Europe. In addition, SynCellEU can offer you the opportunity to showcase your work on synthetic cells and amplify any news or job opportunities you may have by sharing it with its wide network.
