Impact on Synthetic Biology

The expected impacts on synthetic biology are related to our work on:

  • Developing a Whole-cell model
  • Design of a bacterial cellular chassis
  • Genome engineering
Impact on reinforcing cooperation of industry with academia

The work that should be carried out during the project requires a strong collaboration between industrial and academic leaders, that will lead to valuable strategic links that will aid translational research and its industrial development.

At the same time, the project also improve innovation capacity and integration of new knowledge, specially on 2 of the project partners: MSD and ATG. Both would be able to improve their services, include new products on their pipeline and become or continue being a major player on the field. 

Environmental and socially important impacts

An effective vaccine for livestock will increase animal welfare and also decrease the expenses to disease management and reduce the environment footprint.

We have also integrated the risk and ethical assessment into the project with the aim to ensure that end-products will not be found socially unacceptable.
