We draw upon our networks to offer a variety of free events to connect the public to interesting topics in biotechnology. Past free events have included:
Our lab members and some of our wider community teach paid events to sustain the space, disseminate skills, and share revenue. Past paid events have included:
Our members collectively maintain the lab so that it can be used for project work, events, and teaching. We keep the fee for being a member as low as possible because we believe that it's important to keep the lab accessible to as many people as possible. Becoming a member directly supports our efforts to keep the lab open.
Some of our members seek to share their knowledge of the tools of biotechnology. By organizing around projects for the common good we can push forward research projects that might be ignored by other institutions while providing an opportunity to mentor folks in the techniques required to work at the bench.
