We are iGEM Stockholm

We are a group of energetic, passionate and open-minded people who want to be part of the scientific future. Our aim is to make science fun, push it to its limits and make something amazing with biology. We are 15 members from Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Hyper Island and Konstfack. We are a diverse team consisting of 7 women and 8 men, who together encompass 11 different nationalities and 7 different fields of study. We believe that we will all learn from each other by embracing iGEM’s philosophy of Get, Give & Share. Sweden is known for its democratic design, why not make democratic biology?
