On Tuesday 27 March, the TU Delft will launch the Delft Bioengineering Institute. Main speaker is Clive Brown, Chief Technology Officer at DNA sequencing specialist Oxford Nanopore Technologies. You are warmly invited to join the event in the Aula Congress Centre in Delft.
Professor Isabel Arends, Professor of Biocatalysis and founder of the Delft Bioengineering Institute: “We are honoured to have Clive Brown as our guest, especially now we are witnessing major breakthroughs in the field of next generation sequencing. Biological information is now accessible and affordable, and we can do a lot more with it than in the past. During the launch of the Institute, we will show how we want to use this information to tackle issues in areas such as energy, materials, health and climate.”
The Delft Bioengineering Institute brings together more than a hundred scientists from different faculties who work at the interface of biology and engineering. The institute aims to unite TU Delft bioengineers with each other and with external partners. Together with parties from government, industry, business, non-profit organisations and other knowledge institutions, the institute wants to initiate public-private projects on themes such as energy, materials, health and climate.
