EBRC was born from Synberc, the Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center, a ten-year NSF-supported research program that formed a leading network of academic and industrial researchers and organizations in engineering biology. EBRC builds on Synberc’s successes by broadening this network and taking on a new set of leadership challenges as the products of engineering biology make their way to society. EBRC became a non-profit organization on April 15, 2016.
