community biotechnology initiative

@ MIT media lab


Hello Again!

The Community Biotechnology Initiative at the MIT Media Lab is organizing the second annual Global Summit on Community Biotechnology this October 26 to 28! Our goal is to provide a space for the global community of DIY biologists / community biologists / biohackers / biomakers and members of independent and community laboratories to convene, plan, build fellowship, and continue the evolution of our movement. You can learn more about last year's Summit, including our program, here.

While all are welcome, space is limited, so we are prioritizing active practitioners in the community with an emphasis on diversity across geographic, cultural, ethnic, gender, and creative backgrounds. We will add accepted participants to the directory on a rolling basis with the goal of accepting everyone interested in joining.

While the application deadline has officially passed, we will still accept applications, but will prioritize submissions received prior to July 23, 11:59pm ET.

We can't wait to see you in October!!!
