In-Depth Discussion of Proposed Initiatives
Tuesday 24 July 2012, 2:00pm - 4:00pm


For this session we divided into several breakout groups for the first 1 h 30 m of the session, during which we discussed in depth each of the proposed initiatives introduced during Monday’s session.  For each initiative we considered specific objectives, key constituencies, action plans and more. For the final 30 minutes of the session, we reconvened and offered brief reports on what we covered, and considered how to most productively structure the final session on Wednesday.  The three breakout groups, their facilitators, and initiating discussants were:

  • Human Applications of Synthetic Biology Document and Advocacy Initiative:
          facilitator: Rich Hayes 
          Initiating discussants: Eric Hoffman, Jaydee Hanson, Stuart Newman
  • A Communications, Messaging, and Web-based Initiative:
          Co-facilitators: Gina Maranto and Daniel Sharp
  • Foundational & Long-term Thinking and Communications Initiative:
          facilitator: TBD
          Initiating discussant: Bruce Jennings
