Synthetic biology has gained much attention since Craig Venter and his team in 2010 made the historic announcement of the creation of first fully functioning, reproducing cell controlled by synthetic DNA. The 2013 NCMLS New Frontiers symposium - a joint venture between the Radboud University Medical & Science faculties - will feature international keynote speakers as well as NCMLS top researchers, who will provide high-quality presentations on current achievements and challenges ahead in our quest to understanding the chemistry and biology of life.

Keynote lecture:  Roger Tsien, Nobel prize laureate 2008

Roger Yonchien Tsien is a Chinese American biochemist. He is a professor at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California, San Diego. He was awarded the  2008 Nobel Prize in chemistry "for his discovery and development of the green fluorescent protein (GFP)" with two other chemists: Martin Chalfie of Columbia University and Osamu Shimomura of Boston Univer-sity and Marine Biological Laboratory.

Keynote lecture:   Carolyn Bertozzi

Carolyn Bertozzi is the T.Z. and Irmgard Chu Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Senior Faculty Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Prof. Bertozzi's research interests span the disciplines of chemistry and biology with an emphasis on studies of cell surface glycosylation pertinent to disease states.
