Everyone interested in research at the interface of biology and engineering is more than welcome to attend the event in the Aula Building.

Next generation sequencing
Prof. 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 such areas as energy, materials, health and climate.”

Bioengineering Institute
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.
