We are pleased to announce the Sixth International Mammalian Synthetic Biology Workshop (mSBW 6.0), to be held at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL (near Chicago) on the weekend of May 18-19, 2019.  The mSBW series has grown exponentially in recent years to become a signature worldwide event. This event brings pioneers of synthetic biology together with experts from other relevant fields to highlight and inspire cutting-edge synthetic biology research, emphasizing both basic and applied science. The workshop format will provide a forum for exposition of the latest developments in the field and discussions of how experts from related fields can benefit from and contribute to mammalian synthetic biology.

New features planned for this year include a pre-conference tutorial series on the afternoon of Friday May 17, 2019, which is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and faculty who are new to mammalian synthetic biology and wish to learn relevant techniques and scientific and technological fundamentals.

Please revisit this site, which will be updated to include a preliminary technical program with speakers, registration information, travel information, and other event details as they become available.
