Cambridge University Synthetic Biology Society

The Cambridge University Synthetic Biology Society, CUSBS, is a new society aiming to spread the word of Synthetic Biology. Founded by the 2015 Cambridge-JIC iGEM team, we are an enthusiastic team drawing on Scientists, Engineers and Medics. Have a look at our new poster!

To spread the word, we will be running a diverse programme of events throughout term time including:

  • Talks from a wide range of world-speakers, covering topics at the forefront of current research
  • Outreach events to local schools, building on our previous events:
    • Arduino programming and circuit design
    • Introductions to microscopy
  • Projects - we want to build up a hobbyist community, in the spirit of the London BioHackspace
    • This year we are running hardware-based projects, with a microscopy focus. Checkout our projects page to find out more and get involved!
    • Next year we hope to set up our own wet-ware lab, and to do some DIY synbio, stay tuned!
