Drew Endy of Stafford University, Rick Johnson from Global Helix and Eleonore Pauwel from Woodrow Wilson International Center held a panel discussion on the evolving nature of synthetic biology.
Synthetic Biology, in my view, as some people have called it a disruptive technology, is a technology that can potentially have great impact on societies, and create opportunities, as well as create challenges. Certainly, the potential to have impact on international relations and the relations between countries. It’s certainly become a topic of interest here at the State Department, because it potentially affects areas of trade, environment, health, and security. The State Department is very much faced with constructively addressing both the challenges as well as the opportunities that are presented from a new technology, like synthetic biology.
