Café Synthetique is the monthly meetup for the Cambridge synthetic biology community with informal talks, discussion and pub snacks.

This month we are focusing on synthetic biology for global challenges. How can synthetic biology and other emerging and high tech solutions be applied impactfully and equitably to improve the lives of the world’s bottom billion?

Dr Lara Allen and Dr Sara Serradas Duarte of the Centre for Global Equality and Cambridge Global Challenges Forum will explain the problems facing civil society and researchers who want to see cutting edge knowledge and technology from Cambridge benefit the global South, while Open Diagnostics introduce their work examining the potential impact of cell-free diagnostics with synthetic gene circuits in South Africa, Kenya and beyond.
