Synthetic Biology Communities in Practice UCSF Mission Bay April 6 2011
Tonight 0. Why are we meeting again? Who are we? What are we already doing? What (else) could/should we be doing (better)? What are our next steps?
0. Wait, why are we meeting again? Synthetic Biology Practices (@ SynBERC, beyond) VISION & GOALS: We are working with all SynBERC researchers and partners to ensure that the practice of synthetic biology benefits all people and the planet. We envision that each member of the community can help to consider and develop leading examples of responsible synthetic biology in practice. What does a responsible community in practice look like? What do we do?
1. Who are we?2. What are we already doing? Name Background/Position(s) Activities Interests
3. What (else) could/should we be doing (better)? 3.1 A few proposals • discussion/working groups • leaders in practice workshop • synthetic biology slam • welcome to SynBERC/SynBio ‘bootcamp’ 3.2 Your proposals
3.1.1 Practices Discussion & Working Groups community groups meeting regularly to discuss & work on topics of interest (‘gaps’) learn together & invite others produce concrete deliverables (activities, white/research papers, commentaries) SynBERC Practices: funding, logistics, contacts Ownership, Sharing & Innovation Frameworks Intersections of Engineering Ethics & Bioethics Educating & Engaging in Practice Teaching Safety & Limitations of Safety by Design Principles of Biological Design Preparedness Planning
126.96.36.199 SB Leaders in Practice Working Group @ Stanford Educating & Engaging in Practice What do we consider ‘practices basics’, why do we need them and how do we teach them? What does ‘prudent vigilance’ look like? How do we lead in practice(s)? Deliverables: Leaders in Practice Workshop (& Curriculum, Reports) If interested, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
3.1.2 SB Leaders in Practice Workshop v1 an intensive workshop enabling a community of leaders in synthetic biology practices open call to ‘young investigators’ (<PI) describe something limiting the positive advancement of SB and propose a strategy for addressing it building capacities ‘practices basics’ & ‘state of synthetic biology’ (w/ invited guests) developing strategies proposal evaluation and revision by peers, guests rank priorities & identify gaps construct innovation roadmap, write white paper / commentary, task participants format 4-5 days in-residence work, play, socialize location:remote, actual camp ideal size:<25 participants, <10 guests
3.1.3 Synthetic Biology Slam @ SB5.0 Synthetic Biology - What could it be? What are we missing? What is holding us back? Have a big idea? Throw it down at the inaugural Synthetic Biology Slam: a pre-SB5.0 workshop of fast-paced creative talks, plentiful discussion and real-time building of a roadmap for synthetic biology. Meet other innovative thinkers, get feedback, and find new ideas and partners for good work that lies ahead. The SB Slam will be held on the evening of June 14th, right before SB 5.0 kicks off. We will provide beverages and a stage—you will bring your best ideas on what the future holds for Synthetic Biology! Each person will have 5 minutes to present their vision for how the field should evolve over the next few years. We hope to assemble everyone's ideas into a co-authored SB 5.0 poster presenting our collective "roadmap" for Synthetic Biology.
3.1.4 Welcome to Synthetic Biology SynBERC Bootcamp An afternoon workshop (before the fall SynBERC retreat?) to introduce new members to the synthetic biology community What does it mean to do SB @ SynBERC & elsewhere? Why this way? What came before?
4. What are our next steps? 4.1 contact list 4.2 take/share the lead 4.3 meet again? everyone? separately? others? 4.4 discussion & working group @ stanford
