NIH Synthetic Biology Consortium (SBC)

The Synthetic Biology Consortium was formed as a place for researchers and stake holders interested in the synthetic biology field to interact and share ideas with each other, as well as to facilitate bringing synthetic biology researchers to the NIH.  


In 2019, the Synthetic Biology Consortium (SBC) was formed as a result from interest from Program Staff from 11 NIH Institutes/Centers and the Office of the NIH Director. The NIH SBC hosts an annual meeting that is open to the public. The annual meeting videos and summaries are available under the Annual Meeting section below
