Home > Press > INVITATION: “Issues arising from Synthetic Biology: What Lies Ahead?” July 20th at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Abstract:
On November 8-9, 2010, representatives from the fields of synthetic biology research, law, and social science/ethics from more than a dozen research institutions, DOE laboratories, and federal agencies gathered at the Woodrow Wilson International Center (Wilson Center) on for a workshop on "Societal Issues Arising from Synthetic Biology: What Lies Ahead." The workshop was organized by the Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and the Wilson Center.

INVITATION: “Issues arising from Synthetic Biology: What Lies Ahead?” July 20th at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

Washington, DC | Posted on July 6th, 2011

Participants discussed the tremendous potential for synthetic biology to help address human and societal challenges and also explored the challenges of ensuring that these exciting technologies are managed with caution, that benefits are justly distributed, that wise regulations are instituted to maximize benefits and minimize risks, and that a mindset of responsibility is encouraged among everyone involved.

Join us Wednesday July 20th as the proceedings of this workshop are presented and discussed in a new report "Issues arising from Synthetic Biology: What Lies Ahead?"
