Grupo LIA - UPM


We are coordinating the European project funded under FP7 - FET Proactive area and titled PLASWIRES: "Engineering Multicellular Biocircuits: Programming Cell-Cell Communication Using PLASmids as WIRES". Duration of the project: 36 months. Start: October, 2013. Additional information in: www.plaswires.eu

We are also partners in the project on synthetic biology called EVOPROG: "General-Purpose Programmable Evolution Machine on a Chip".  Start: October, 2013. Duration of the project: 36 months.

Our project "ENGINEERING and PROGRAMMING BIOCIRCUITS: DESIGN and IN SILICO MODELING" which was selected for funding by the Spanish Government (project code TIN2012-36992) is also running.

Offering one PhD studentship in Synthetic Biology and Microfludic Systems. Detailed information about the offered PhD grant may be seen HERE. Deadline for applications: September 10th, 2013.

 

Synthetic Biology European project BACTOCOM (Bacterial Computing with Engineered Populations) finished on July, 2013. www.bactocom.eu

Our team will participate in two new European research projects in Synthetic Biology field: EVOPROG and PLASWIRES that will begin in October, 2013.

PLASWIRES project (coordinated by LIA group) has been funded by European Commision. It will start in October 2013. www.plaswires.eu

-Our next Synthetic Biology research project will be financed by Spanish Government:

Project code: TIN2012-36992.
Project Title: "PROGRAMACIÓN E INGENIERÍA DE BIOCIRCUITOS: DISEÑO Y
MODELADO IN SILICO".
Duration: 3 years. Begins at January 2013. Ends at December 2015.

A new Ph.D. grant position of 4 years (Spanish "beca FPI") will be available associated to this project TIN2012-36992
