Emory Biotech Club - iGEM Research Competition 2021

Who We Are

Emory Biotech Club (EBC) is comprised of a group of students dedicated to increasing biotechnology awareness amongst students while providing an outlet to practice meaningful biotech work. We accomplish this by hosting a variety of outreach events, graduate student panels for prospective biotechnology students, and by building sustaining relationships with Emory professors and local biotech companies.

International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition

Since 2004, teams from around the world have gathered to compete in The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Competition, the premier undergraduate and graduate student competition in synthetic biology. Each team is tasked with developing engineered bacteria to carry out a specific task or functionality in preparation for the competition.

The Emory iGEM team has competed in the competition in past years, most recently receiving a bronze medal in the 2018, with hopes of representing the Emory community again in the 2021. To us, iGEM is much more than a competition! iGEM gives students like us exposure to lab experience, the scientific process, and presentation. It is an unparalleled experience that prepares us for our future careers while letting our imaginations spur creative solutions to prominent global problems.

The Impact of Your Gift

Next year, the iGEM competition is being held in Paris as opposed to Boston. We hope to attend the competition not only so that we can learn to develop and present our very own research project but also to collaborate with others and gain exposure. While this change in location poses a unique fundraising challenge for the Emory Biotech Club, we know that with the support of community members like you, anything is possible. Your gift, no matter the size, could help us fund our research project and our travel costs.
