As professor and leader of the JCVI Synthetic Biology Group, John Glass pushes the boundaries of synthetic biology. Dr. Glass was part of the team responsible for creating the famous synthetic bacterial cell, Synthia. With an expertise at the intersection of molecular biology, microbial pathogenesis, RNA virology and microbial genomics, he has led numerous society-changing projects over the course of his career. Some of which include the development of a synthetic influenza, as well as creating cells and organelles with redesigned genomes to engineer microbes to make useful products. This lecture is not to be missed!

The Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck is a series of live-streamed themed lectures and interactive discussions for science students and those interested in science in general. During this pandemic period, it has become harder to communicate science to students and young researchers, just like you. We want to experience the latest developments, provide you with perspectives on scientific careers, and let you get involved with discussions. So we came up with the Late Night Conference, where every month we invite a distinguished speaker to present a live lecture. Not only that, but the talk will be followed by a lively Q&A session fed by questions from you, our audience!

Best regards,
 The Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck Team
