KTH Life Science Technology Day 2017 "Bacteria – Foe & Friend"


This event is arranged by the KTH Life Science Technology Platform in order to bring together academia, public sector and industry. We highlight e.g. technologies for meeting challenges associated with antibiotic resistance, ranging from societal level to treatment of infections, as well as technologies for using bacteria for the benefit of mankind.

This event is arranged by the KTH Life Science Technology Platform in order to bring together academia, public sector and industry. We highlight e.g. technologies for meeting challenges associated with antibiotic resistance, ranging from societal level to treatment of infections, as well as technologies for using bacteria for the benefit of mankind. Christopher Voigt from MIT talks about his research on synthetic biology that combines engineering disciplines with Life Sciences in a highly unexpected way, e.g., Prof. Voigt has developed a programming language that "compiles" into DNA in a bacterium. Bryan Tracy, CEO and co-founder of White Dog Lab, presents developing and commercializing novel technologies that use bacteria to address global challenges including food sustainability and climate change. The presentations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden and Karolinska University Hospital also take place. The presentations will be intertwined with opportunities for gaining insight into ongoing KTH research related to the theme.
