We are proud to announce that our 2018 iGEM team has been selected.

We had the largest number of applicants to date, from which 20 were selected to attend an afternoon of interviews. Each student had to present details of their favourite synthetic biology application whilst the interview panel assessed their enthusiasm and the level of research they had done into this concept.

The calibre was exceedingly high, and it wasn’t easy to pick the final team. In the end, 11 students were selected to represent the University of Warwick at the prestigious iGEM Jamboree event which will be held in Boston in October 2018. Our final team is comprised of:

  • Alizah Khalid, 2nd year Biomedical Sciences
  • Gurpreet Dhaliwal, 1st Biochemistry
  • Jack Lawrence, 2nd Medical Microbiology
  • James O’Brien, 3rd Biomedical Sciences
  • Janvi Ahuja, 2nd Biomedical Sciences
  • Jonny Whiteside, 2nd Biochemistry
  • June One, 2nd Law
  • Kurt Hill, 1st Computer Science
  • Laura Mansfield, 1st Life Sciences and Global and Sustainable Development
  • Olivor Holman, 2nd Biological Sciences
  • Rhys Evans, 2nd Medical Microbiology

We wish the team the best of luck, and know that they will have a great summer working on their iGEM project and will make the University proud when they present in Boston.
