We have finally moved in to our new Bio Design lab in the Devonshire building at Newcastle University. So far our work has been spread across Labs at the Centre of Bacteria Cell Biology (at Newcastle University), Northumbria University and Civil Engineering as well as the workshops in Architecture at Newcastle University. The lab has been […]
Our projects on genetically engineering a new generation of building materials have been featured in the November issue of Living North Magazine. The article features and interview with Martyn Dade-Robertson on the future of building materials in the age of biotechnologies focused on our work on Bacteria based materials.

Our Material Ecologies for Synthetic Biologies paper has been published in Computer-Aided Design. Abstract and download are below: This paper discusses the role that material ecologies might have in the emerging engineering paradigm of Synthetic Biology (hereafter SB). In this paper we suggest that, as a result of the paradigm of SB, a new way […]
