    We want to thank the CRI (Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires) and INSERM for kindly hosting us during our project, providing us laboratory facilities and insightful discussion with researchers of the CRI community.

    Safety & Security Grant

    This is the first year that iGEM’s Safety and Security Program, with thanks to Open Philanthropy, awarded 5 grants of $5000 to teams working on the possible technical advances in biosafety. Our team was selected as one of the 5 winners of this Grant (description below).

    This grant allowed us to move forward in several parts of our project. As an example, we were able to test various materials and pieces of equipment for our filtering system we would not have access to otherwise.

    Impact Grant

    To take our project to the next level, iGEM, with the support of the Frederick Gardner Cottrell Foundation, also decided to distribute $2,500 grants to 90 teams for the first time this year. Our project was selected by the committee and this grant helped us to cover the fees for our participation in the 2021 Giant Jamboree.


    We would like to thank our 2021 sponsors for their help and financial support which made our project possible by supporting us.
