BrisSynBio aims to be a translational synthetic biology hub for Bristol and the South West. Through our Innovation Programme we aim to:

  • develop a self-sustaining funding steam from BrisSynBio innovation activities
  • establish BrisSynBio as a high-profile centre for synthetic biology innovation with a vibrant industrial network
  • foster a long-term culture of innovation at all levels of BrisSynBio students and staff

This programme is already bearing fruit. BrisSynBio’s first start-up company (Zentraxa) was launched in early 2017 and we have a range of upcoming innovation events.
