£0raised of £2,500 target by 0 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,500 to help pay for a student team from King's College London enter the iGEM competition to solve real world problems

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


This year, King’s College London has put together its first ever “iGEM” team of 18 talented students to work on a synthetic biology project. iGEM is a premier, global competition, where students from all over the world compete to produce a molecular machine in the form of DNA that can be registered as a “Bio-Brick” – a bit like pieces of Lego that scientists can use modularly as diagnostic, therapeutic or environmental tools to solve real-world problems e.g. antibiotic resistance.

We are still finalising our project but will post updates here.

Attending the conference in October incurs huge expenses and we are making efforts to obtain sponsorship and raise money in fun and innovative ways. The target on this page represents the cost for 3 students to compete at the conference ($750 each). We obviously have a larger team than this so this target may change, but this would be a start. We would be so grateful for anyone wishing to contribute to future science stars and this valuable science-based project!
