Team Stanford wins honors at iGEM Jamboree

awardFor several years, hundreds of undergraduates from across the world have gathered at MIT to compete in the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Jamboree. Using a collection of standardized, interchangeable DNA parts called BioBricks, teams are challenged to design and test a simple biological system and to operate it in living cells. This year’s contest, which took place Oct. 31–Nov. 2, was Stanford’s first time participating. And Team Stanford did the Farm proud. Their project, “Immuni-T. coli: A Probiotic Approach to Diagnosing and Treating Inflammatory Bowel Disease,” earned the Best Health or Medicine Project honor as well as a gold medal. Led by DREW ENDY and CHRISTINA SMOLKE, both assistant professors of bioengineering, the team included co-directors NGHI NGUYEN, a senior in biological sciences, and ARIANE TOM, a junior in materials science and engineering. A full list of the team members is on their website.
