NTI Urges Enhanced Focus on Biosecurity at Gathering of Synthetic Biology Experts

This week in
Singapore, NTI joins experts for the
Seventh International Meeting on
Synthetic Biology

(SB 7.0).  SB 7.0 is a global gathering
of leading institutions focused on realizing societal benefits from synthetic
biology and discussing responsible practices.
Beth Cameron, NTI’s Senior Director for Global
Biological Policy and Programs, was invited to participate in a
security-centered dialogue during
this year’s event

that will focus on assessing and reducing risks posed by emerging technologies
and their applications.

Cameron will
urge gathered innovators to consider new and global strategies for mitigating
the risk of intentional misuse or accidental release associated with emerging
technologies in genome editing and synthetic biology, while maximizing the
potential for positive societal benefits. Cameron also will discuss NTI’s
perspectives on biosecurity, threat reduction, and global health security with
selected emerging leaders organized by the
Johns Hopkins Center for Health
funding from the
Open Philanthropy Project. This is part of a new track focused on biosecurity and synthetic biology during SB 7.0 in coordination with
BioBricks Foundation, SynBioBeta, & the National
University of Singapore.
