Metabolic Engineering 15 | AIChE

The Metabolic Engineering Conference is the world-leading conference to share developments and achievements in the field. The conference enables participants to collectively explore how developments in metabolic engineering can advance diverse sectors across agriculture, biomanufacturing, medicine, and more. No other conference provides this breadth and excellence in the field of metabolic engineering.

ME15 will continue to spark collaboration and inspire innovation in metabolic engineering. I look forward to welcoming ME15 participants to Singapore and introducing them to Singapore’s cultural and natural diversity as well.
Matthew Chang, Conference Chair, National University of Singapore

Things to Do

Singapore has continually reinvented itself to become one of the most enticing destinations in Asia, attracting record numbers of tourists with its cuisines, cultures, shopping havens and nightspots.

I really enjoy the community of researchers who gather for the ME conferences. ME15 is a terrific opportunity to renew existing connections while also welcoming new participants.
