What is iGEM?

iGEM or "international Genetically Engineered Machine" is a global prestigious synthetic biology competition that is held every year in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). Student teams from each participating university work all year long to develop genetically engineered systems that make a positive contribution to the world.

What do we do?

We are a team of passionate scientists 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 synbio by organizing scientific conferences and workshops.
