I am a second year Computer Scientist and my key role is part of the computer modelling team.
Why iGEM?: The DNA-as-programming-language concept of synthetic biology appeals to me both as a computer scientist and as a former A-level Biology student - I think it's an area with massive potential and I can't wait to see what the future holds for for SynBio!
Philipp Boeing
I'm a second year Computer Science student. I helped recruiting the team and my main job is making sure we go as far as we can.
Why iGEM?: I'm very excited by the potential of synthetic biology and I think iGEM is a particularly great project, because it involves so many different aspects: lab work, modeling, marketing, human practice...
Philipp Boeing
Thomas Hargest Thomas Hargest
I am a third year Biochemical Engineer and my key role is part of the computer modelling team. In particular I am working on MATLAB, and modelling of the plastic in the ocean.
Why iGEM?: iGEM is a good introduction to synthetic biology and I feel that synthetic biology will play a large role in the future due to its large potential for application in many fields, particularly medicine.
Leonard Wen Yan Leong
I am a second year Biochemical Engineer, and my key role in iGEM is in characterisation and construction of Biobricks.
Why iGEM?: It's a great collaboration between different fields, creating something new - and oh yeah, it's extremely geeky!
Leonard Wen Yan Leong
James Rutley James Rutley
I am in year 5 and I am studying MEng Biochemical Engineering with Extra Mural Year. My role within the team is to ensure focus on key targets and deliverables, acting between different groups to ensure that these are achieved, as well as getting hands on in the lab.
Why iGEM?: Synthetic Biology is an exciting field showing a lot of promise, and iGEM appeals to me as a fascinating way of working as part of a very interdisciplinary team in this field and within a competitive environment.
Rhiannon Wilkinson
I am a third year Medic with an iBSC in Genetics, and my key role in iGEM is coordinating the wiki, and carrying out the lab work.
Why iGEM?: As Synthetic Biology is a relatively young area of science, I feel there is a lot of unexplored territory to investigate, and that makes iGEM a particularly pioneering, exciting, and challenging research opportunity. 
Rhiannon Wilkinson

I am a second year Biomedical Scientist and my key role in iGEM is in coordinating Human Practices, and in the characterisation and construction of Biobricks.
Why iGEM?: iGem is fun! It is an interesting blend of creativity and Science!  
Bouran Sohrabi
I am a second year Biochemist and my key role in iGEM is in the characterisation and construction of Biobricks
Why iGEM?: Engineering synthetic organisms? I had to get involved. The field of synthetic biology, as well as this project present numerous challenges and opportunities, and I'm keen to play a part in the growth of this exciting discipline.

I am a first year Biochemist, and my key role is in coordinating the design of our Poster, and in the characterisation and construction of Biobricks
Why iGEM?: iGEM combines both new field of synthetic biology as well as interdisciplinary research which I am interested in.
Bethan Wolfenden
I am a 1st year biochemist, responsible for forming community partnerships and sponsorship.
Why iGEM?: I love the potential of iGEM; by taking part in an undergradute-led research project, we get to truly experience the responsibility and independence of academic life.

Martina Sebastian Martina Sebastian
I am a second year Biochemical Engineering student. I am working on public engagement and sponsorship and supporting the characterisation and biobrick construction team.
Why iGEM?: I am so excited to be part of the iGEM team; be able to see synthetic biology from different perspectives and investigate its application to resolve such a huge environmental problem that is the Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch and least but not last a summer in the lab sounds like good fun :-)
