Single component biology is past; Bioengineering has begun Integration of different fields within biological research is now obligatory for scientists seeking to answer challenges in human health and medicine. These are the days of vast data sets, novel systems and complex information. The future of biology is now not limited to biologists, chemists and medics but one also involving mathematicians, physicists and engineers. The huge influx of new ideas and principles being brought in from these ‘foreign’ disciplines means we are no longer restricted to reductively studying biology but can apply these to biotechnology, medicine and engineering.

Developments at the University of Cambridge have been wide ranging and significant; from synthetic biology and biofuels to cellular biomechanics and tissue engineering. This HORIZON seminar, taking place at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, will demonstrate how bioengineering exploits these new developments and applies them to providing technical solutions to current and emerging health and environmental concerns.

The event will be of vital interest to pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, researchers in the agrichemical, environmental and biotechnology sectors, and doctors and other health professionals.
