Synthetic Biology: Engineering a Sustainable 21st Century

September 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more. Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.

All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.

Please see the tour description and registration link below:
Microbes have evolved into exquisite chemists that catalyze thousands of reactions happening in nature. Learning to harness these processes is vital to building a sustainable economy, environmental security, and energy independence. How can biology lead the next industrial revolution and save the planet? Learn how PNNL is leading advanced research on microbiome engineering to obtain energy from industrial wastes and improve bioenergy crop health to make this future a reality.
