Who are we?

We are the first Illinois iGEM team, and we're very excited about that fact. Our team has a diverse mix of backgrounds drawing students from all over campus. The represented departments include bioengineering, physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, and molecular and cellular biology. This broad background gives us a the ability to look at problems from many angles and come up with unique solutions. Under the guidance of our advisers we have been working to put together a project to bring to MIT this November. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity that iGEM has given us, and look forward to being a competitive team in the future.
