Welcome to the MIT BioMakers! 

A lively community and home to biomaking projects for MIT engineers of all interests and levels of experience.

The MIT BioMakers was created to inspire biomaking in the MIT community and foster interdisciplinary work and research. We are here to collaborate with students in developing their own projects while also giving them a space to accomplish this and a community to grow with and learn from. We host a variety of events, projects, and classes for the MIT community and are part of a growing network of biomakerspaces across university campuses.
