BioSynthAge : Do not go gentle into that good night

We envision a time in which the human population lives a healthier life, for longer. We will use synthetic biology to ensure the ageing world population can both maintain their quality of life and extend their lifespan - increasing their ‘healthspan’. The health challenges currently posed by ageing are many and complex so we propose a suite of synthetic biology solutions to tackle these challenges. We have modelled, designed novel BioBrick devices, characterised our BioBricks, collaborated and thought about the real world application through our human practices! Have a look at our achievements or watch our project video below to find out how we are approaching this!
