Baltimore-US is made up of hobbyists, faculty and students from local educational institutions and "Haker spaces" including the Community College of Baltimore County, and Loyola and Towson Universities. We have assembled a team of professional and amateur scientists/engineers/artists to put forth a team for this year's iGEM competition.
We wish to create a venue where the community could step into this competition and learn with hands-on experience the tools, techniques, and resources necessary to explore this emerging field under the observance of trained professionals.

Faculty Instructors and Advisors

  • Tom Burkett, Associate Professor of Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing at CCBC
  • Lisa Scheifele, Assistant Professor of Biology at Loyola University
  • Elizabeth Goode, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Towson University.

Our members range in age and experience, made up of graduates, students, professors of HCC, CCBC, Johns Hopkins, Towson and Loyola University. We've got biological and electrical engineers, computer scientists and computer programmers and curious novices. We've come together with enthusiasm to try and see what we might be able to accomplish with these new technologies.

Regardless of what we create, we hope to document the experiences and frustrations in hopes of making the field more accessible to other Sythetic Biology enthusiasts and students, creating additional media and educational tools along the way.
