Creating a Nexus for the Synthetic Biology Industry

LEAP Alumnus John Cumbers founded SynBioBeta, which held its inaugural meeting during the fall of 2012, right after the inaugural LEAP program. SynBioBeta has since grown to be the leading community of entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers and enthusiasts devoted to the responsible growth of the synthetic biology field. Their international conferences and events bring this community together several times a year and have featured many LEAP Fellows and mentors.
