The iGEM team returns to campus to begin finalizing ideas and creating a schedule for the rest of the summer.


The iGEM team has secured the necessary funds to cover summer housing and experimental work.


After almost 5 months of drafting and dozens of project proposals, the Stanford iGEM team has finally settled on a project for the 2009 iGEM Jamboree. The project centers around designing a novel probiotic therapy for inflammatory bowel diseases through regulating the body's level of T regulatory cels and T effector cells.


We are pleased to announce that we have selected the inaugural Stanford iGEM for 2008-2009. Please visit the "Team" page to see who they are! We are also grateful to have six amazing graduate students as mentors. Please check back to find out our upcoming project idea for the summer.


Our informational meeting was a great success. Thank you to all of those who came, especially the graduate students. For those who missed the event, please download the Information Packet for Undergraduates and for Graduate students: Information Packet and Graduate Questionaire.


We spent the weekend at MIT to observe the iGEM 2008 Jamboree. Along with Cornell University, Stanford iGEM will be making its debut in November 2009.
