iGEM speaks at United Nations Biodiversity Conference
iGEM is more than a competition. It is a program dedicated to education and the advancement of synthetic biology. The United Nations Biodiversity Conference gave iGEM the platform to participate in discussions about synthetic biology on a global scale.
This past December Meagan Lizarazo, iGEM VP, made a statement in support of synthetic biology at the United Nations Biodiversity Conference in Cancun, Mexico. In addition to iGEM Headquarters, 5 iGEMers were selected to serve as
official iGEM delegates at the event, joining in the conversation to address key issues surrounding policy and safety in synthetic biology on an international scale.
