Sainsbury Laboratory University of Cambridge and Algal Innovation Centre

January 29, 2020 @ 12:00 am


We are returning to the Sainsbury Lab at the University of Cambridge which was the site of the very first YIF visit back in 2015.

The Sainsbury Lab is a research institute trying to clarify the regulatory systems underlying plant growth and development. We will have a tour of the facilities and speak with some of the researchers.

Following on from that we are going to be taken around the Algal Innovation Centre. The AIC is a Centre for Excellence with test and scale-up facilities. They connect the entire pipeline of algal research from strain selection and improvement, through harvesting and processing, to development of underpinning technology and engineering solutions. Possible uses for algae are increasing by the day so this exciting opportunity not to be missed!

To take in this visit please email fiona.rust@agritech-east.co.uk. Further information will be sent nearer the event including the event timings.
