Biology of Chemical Production Symposium
Biology for Chemical Production Symposium

中央研究院將於5月31日(五)上午9點半在生醫所舉行Biology for Chemical Production 研討會。這次我們很榮幸邀請到享譽國際的美國麻省理工學院Gregory Stephanopoulos教授以及韓國科學技術院Professor Sang Yup Lee來台,他們將分別以「Engineering the isoprenoid pathway in bacteria and yeasts」與「Systems metabolic engineering for the sustainable production of plastics」為題,發表演說。此外,我們也邀請了國內的專家分享他們在此領域的研究成果。國內講者包含本院李文雄院士、林曉青研究員,成功大學張嘉修教授、清華大學胡育誠教授以及臺灣科技大學蔡伸隆教授。


It’s our great honor to announce that a one-day symposium on "Biology for Chemical Production" will take place in Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Academia Sinica on May 31st , 2019.  We welcome you to participate in this symposium.
The Symposium will highlight new and upcoming research in the development of novel chemical biosynthesis platforms. We have invited two world leaders in this area: Professor Gregory Stephanopoulos of MIT and Professor Sang Yup Lee of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). These two special guests are editor-in-chief of the flagship journal Metabolic Engineering.  In addition, 5 local experts will join the symposium to share with us their research in this field. They are Academician Wen-Shiung Li (李文雄) of Academia Sinica, Professor Jo-Shu Chang (張嘉修) of NCKU, Professor Yu-Chen Hu (胡育誠) of NTHU, Professor Shen-Long Tsai (蔡伸隆) of Taiwan Tech and Research Fellow Hsiao-Ching Lin (林曉青).

The Symposium is a rare opportunity to promote dialogue on the area of Metabolic Engineering and Synthetic Biology related to chemical biosynthesis. The symposium is open to the public and no registration fees are needed. Please help to forward this information to faculty, students, postdocs, industrial practitioners and any interested individuals. We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
