BSc Cell Biology - 3rd year BSc Biological Sciences/Economics - 3rd year
Background & Interests: Interests include both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cellular anatomy & physiology. The project has also piqued my interest in bionanotechnolgy and a variety of types of RNA. Background & Interests: The first time I heard the term "genetic engineering," it piqued my curiosity. Now I think synthetic biology is absolutely fascinating because of all the revolutionary things it could mean for the future. I have had a blast in my iGEM experiences and am excited at having been exposed to such a cutting edge research field.

BSc Biological Sciences - 4th year BSc Electrical Engineering - 4th year
Background & Interests: Biological sciences major and biochemistry minor. This is my first exposure to "synthetic biology" and I find it amazing how much potential the field has. Background & Interests: Computational modeling of RNA structure, air quality modeling, computational intelligence, hats and goggles

BSc Biochemistry - 2nd Year
Background & Interests: My goal for the next 4 years are to finish my BSc honors degree in Biochemistry, while maintaining my own business. Joining the iGEM team is truly a highlight of academic career, and it has been an amazing experience to work at the forefront of science.

BSc Biological Sciences MSc Electrical and Computer Engineering - 2nd year
Background & Interests: My career ambition is to become a neurosurgeon.I was motivated to join iGEM because of its radical approach to research and design. Most surgeons complete a 2 year masters during their residency. Having learned the basics of synthetic biology, and potential treatments and medical applications, I know that this is one area of research I would like to pursue in the future. Background & Interests: BSc Engineering Physics, BSc Biochemistry from University of Saskatchewan, interests include nanobiotechnology(biosensors, nanobiomotors, cell mimetic systems), new developments in spaceflight and the space industry
