iGEM Community, formerly known as After iGEM, is for anyone who wants to be engaged in iGEM related programming all around the world. With approximately 60,000 individuals who have gone through the iGEM Competition and more who have contributed to or participated in the efforts of iGEM, our community is growing, evolving and building up the future of the iGEM universe. We want to invite, engage, and co-create initiatives with all of you to support our community and help it succeed. We also want to provide you with opportunities and resources that will help you in your career goals and development both as an individual and a community member.
The iGEM Community brings our diverse global community together to build and support the synthetic biology ecosystem. Over the years our program has expanded to welcome iGEMers (students, researchers, senior advisors, startup founders and more) and those passionate about synthetic biology to work on specialized topics and regional goals, create resources to solve the challenges of importance to our society and communities, and build the resources to advance the synbio-related fields forward.
The iGEM ambassadors represent and promote iGEM and synthetic biology in their respective regions. They are a diverse and international team of regional leaders who have experienced iGEM and now work together to promote initiatives to expand iGEM and collaborate with local stakeholders to disseminate cooperation across their community.
