Metabolic Engineering Summit

Embodying synthetic biology for the development of sustainable bioprocesses
December 1-2, 2015

The 2015 Metabolic Engineering Summit will be held in Beijing, China. It is chaired by George Chen, Tsinghua University. In recent years metabolic engineering has grown rapidly in China and to further stimulate this growth the International Metabolic Engineering Society (IMES) is hosting a Metabolic Engineering Summit (ME-Summit) in China on December 1-2, 2015.

The 2015 Metabolic Engineering Summit will be held in Beijing, China. It is chaired by George Chen, Tsinghua University. In recent years metabolic engineering has grown rapidly in China and to further stimulate this growth the International Metabolic Engineering Society (IMES) is hosting a Metabolic Engineering Summit (ME-Summit) in China on December 1-2, 2015. The aims of the ME Summit are to provide a venue:

  1. For scientific presentations from a diverse group of leading researchers in biology, chemistry and engineering from various countries to exchange recent development in ME disciplines in China.
  2. To stimulate interactions between academic, business, journalist, political and industry researchers in and outside China, who bring different approaches and perspectives to the field.
  3. For active participation by local Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers, who would like to advance their career in metabolic engineering and synthetic biology globally.
  4. For forming scientific collaborations between the international metabolic engineering and synthetic biology communities with the corresponding Chinese communities.
