Bio: Founded at the Impact Centre in 2013, the Synthetic Biology Innovation Cluster is a collective network of scientific researchers and private sector industry leaders. Synthetic Biology Innovation Cluster (SynBio-IC) plays a key role in forming partnerships to innovate new solutions for markets worldwide— bringing together researchers, government agencies and industry partners to unlock the full potential of synthetic biology.

The SynBio-IC recognizes the need for co-operation between researchers and industry leaders is essential in accelerating the translation of new knowledge into commercially viable and socially relevant products. In order to foster these partnerships, gatherings are based across Southern Ontario where these partnerships are formed and strengthened further, in order to continuously push the limits of synthetic biology.
