Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
Scientists with backgrounds in different fields (such as biology, chemistry, physics, and philosophy) from all over the world are getting together in The Hague for the SynCell2022 conference. This conference allows them to meet and discuss the progress and challenges in their common effort to build synthetic cells. What are these challenges? What are the promises for science and technology? And what is the impact of synthetic cells on society? This online lecture will be open to the general public, and especially to (undergraduate) students from around the world who might be interested in contributing to this exciting project in their future careers.
