Home Community


We are a community of cutting-edge synthetic cell researchers and institutions as well as world-leading companies. This platform acts as a bridge between science and industry. Our common goal is to better connect scientists with other scientists and companies in the field of bottom-up synthetic cell biology, in order to answer the fundamental question of how life works and translate research outputs into revolutionary compounds and products.

By joining the synthetic cell community you can:

  • Expand your network: connect with cutting-edge research institutions and labs all over Europe. Our strength comes from the expertise and resources of our partners.
  • Show your work to fellow scientists of your specialization at all stages of their career (PhD, postdoc, PI, or Professor) and get communication support for online meetings
  • Show the technological and commercial possibilities of your work on our platform to start-ups and world-leading companies supporting this initiative.

How the (keyword) tagging system works:

  • By clicking the scientific keywords – shown as orange tags – you can find all scientists working in that specialization of bottom-up synthetic cell research. See for example the webpage showing all users working on microfluidics or cell metabolism.
  • Browse our overview of all scientific keywords in use at the moment as well as the scientists linked to these specializations in bottom-up synthetic cell research.
  • Join us! Fill in the community form to add your profile and specialization in bottom-up synthetic cell research to this page. After we’ve uploaded your profile, your keywords also become clickable orange tags with which to find colleague’s’ profiles working in that niche. You will sometimes see news items related to that keyword as well.


To understand how life works, cell researchers all over Europe are building components of cells from their basic parts. From biochemistry and biophysics to genome engineering and genetics, from microbiology to societal and ethical aspects; our synthetic cell researchers bring these different fields together.
