KTH Life Science Technology Day

Thursday, 31 August, 2017 - 10:00 to 16:30

In this year's edition of the Life Science Technology Day at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the theme is "Bacteria – Foe & Friend". This is a opportunity to gain insight into world of microorganisms and see examples of expected, as well as unexpected, interactions with technology.

The theme "Bacteria – Foe & Friend" includes e.g. technologies for meeting challenges associated with antibiotic resistance, ranging from supporting societal level strategies to medical treatment of infections, as well as technologies for using bacteria for the benefit of mankind. 

As previous editions, there will be presentations from invited speakers. The preliminary program has Christopher Voigt from MIT who will talk about his research on synthetic biology that combines engineering disciplines with life sciences in an highly unexpected way and Bryan Tracy, CEO and co-founder of White Dog Lab, which focuses on developing and commercializing novel technologies that use bacteria to address global challenges including food sustainability and climate change. These presentations will be intertwined with opportunities for gaining insight into ongoing KTH research related to the theme.

When: August 31 2017, 10.00-16.30
Where: Ångdomen within the main KTH Library building, Osquars backe 31, Stockholm
