iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) is an international synthetic biology competition that is held every year. Student teams from each participating university work for months to develop genetically engineered systems that make a positive contribution to the world.
We are a team of passionate students who are dedicated to improving human lives by means of synthetic biology. By combining expertise from fields such as biomedical sciences, molecular biology or bioengineering, we strive to create an application with a lasting impact. Next to our research, we aim to involve our local community in the fascinating world of synthetic biology through scientific communication, education, and the organisation of multiple events.
