Our Team

Sheffield iGEM is made up of the Board, its leading body, and the Research team. The Research team has students from many Departments like Molecular Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Automatic Controls and Systems Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Economics.

At the end of every Semester 1, about 50 undergraduate students apply to get on the Research team. Only half of these applicants make it through to phase two, which is interviews. The Research team is usually made up of 8-10 members. The readers is a new level that will recruit students that have the “iGEM spirit”, however their research experience is not quite there yet. They would then become very strong candidates for the research team the next year.
