Community

We are a community of cutting-edge synthetic cell researchers, companies and institutions. Our common goal is to better connect scientists with other scientists and companies in the field of bottom-up synthetic cell biology, in order to answer the fundamental question of how life works and translate research outputs into revolutionary compounds and products.

  • 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. Our strength comes from the expertise and resources of our partner institutes and our network.
  • Want to join? Fill in the community form and we will add your profile and specialization to this page. You can also search for profiles using the map or the search box: fill in the keywords you are interested in and people who work in those fields will appear in the results.
