Life Sciences Interface (LSI) Forum

The Life Sciences Interface Forum provides a mechanism to develop a co-ordinated portfolio of research programmes at the University of Southampton. LSI Forum’s aims are:

  • To foster cross-disciplinary dialogue within the University of Southampton

  • To nurture and support distinctive and world-leading programmes at the LSI

  • To link incipient LSI activities, Schools’ strategic plans and the University’s research and enterprise strategy

  • To enhance external visibility of LSI activities

  • To promote entrepreneurial activities at the LSI

iGEM Team Southampton 2009 would like to thank the Life Sciences Interfaces Forum for providing the funding and initiative to allow the participation of Team Southampton in iGEM2009.

University of Southampton

The University of Southampton is one of the top 15 research universities in the UK and has achieved consistently high scores for its learning and teaching activities. A member of the prestigious Russell group of UK universities, there are over 25,000 students and over 5,000 staff split across six campuses.

iGEM Team Southampton 2009 would specifically like to thank the School of Chemistry and the School of Electronics and Computer Science for academic and financial support throughout the undertaking of the iGEM project.

The School of Chemistry is in the top ten of both the Times and Guardian League Tables for 2010, whilst it is currently rated number one in the UK by chemistry students in terms of overall satisfaction relating to their degree course (National Student Survey 2008). The school is also one of 25 European universities which were recognised as part of the ‘Group of Excellence’ for the quality of their research by the Centre for Higher Education (CHE) in 2007.

The School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton was the first in the UK, and possibly even the world. It was established in 1946 as the Department of Electronics, Telecommunications and Radio Engineering. ECS is the UK’s leading academic department integrating computer science, electronics and electrical engineering. October 2008 saw the opening of ECS’ new Mountbatten building, giving the School of one Europe’s best multidisciplinary cleanroom facilities.

sb.jpg provides a gateway to current research programmes in Semi-biotic Systems and to associated outreach resources. Semi-biotic systems are systems that incorporate biologically derived components/modules – which could range from multi-protein complexes through DNA constructs to multi-cellular assemblies – and integrate them with synthetic components (e.g. microfabricated systems) to produce hybrid devices.

iGEM Team Southampton 2009 would like to thank for provision of an online interface for iGEM Team Southampton members to interact and collaborate during their research.
