<i>"My visit to those fellow students at the academy will not soon be forgotten. I heard stories, saw faces, and

hopefully made an impression on them. My goal when I went in that building was to shatter any perceptions of

science students and science as “stuffy” and “uptight”. After talking to them between demonstrations, I think I did

 +
that. I wanted to share my belief with them that science and education in general are the most beautiful privileges

we have. In return I feel inspired by them to be a role model and use my talents to help others, wherever I find

 +
myself in the future.”</i><br/>

  • Mission Statement

    The UIUC 2012 iGEM team has embraced human practices as an opportunity to develop our own sense of ethics and responsibility while promoting general knowledge about synthetic biology.

    We have decided to focus our energies on a collaboration to produce informative and thought provoking videos on genetically modified organisms as well as individual presentations on synthetic biology within the Champaign-Urbana community.
