Public Engagement and Marketing
Lux has worked incredibly hard on our digital and social media. Any of the photos you see have been taken by them! They have also done research on UK team funding and communications, and UK supermarket antibiotic policy.
Maya has been focused on producing materials for educational visits, meet-ups and conferences, and the website- as well as organising collaborations with other teams. She also designed our banner for the giant jamboree!
Desiree has done so much for our team! As well as influencing the theme of our lab project, and coming up with our slogan, she has organised workshops and fundraising, and designed our fundraising materials!
Ella has been busy contacting anyone and everyone you can think of through running social media, translating fundraising materials for different companies and organising events.
Kat has been there from the start, recruiting and interviewing members. She’s helped with sponsorship and event organisation, as well as producing our brochure for Kings’ 2029 Vision.
João is our resident adventurer, who headed off to Kenya this summer and taught the basics of synthetic biology to the children he was working with.
Technology and Wiki Development
Ajay has produced this wiki. There is so much the rest of the team doesn’t understand about what he does- so we just step back and watch the magic happen.
Max is another tech wizard. He’s helped develop and debug the wiki with Ajay, and has done the computational modelling of the sRNA-GFP gene system. Sounds lit.
Majo has been in the lab day in day out, working on the InterLab study and assembly of our biobricks. She has also contributed to the documentation of all of the work the lab team has done.
Deeksha has been knee-deep in papers, looking at literature research before the project, form-filling for the interlab study and keeping the notebook up to date.
Anthony is another original team member and general all-rounder, conducting interviews and setting up social media pages. He’s secured sponsors and worked hard in the lab all summer.
Shubh has not only been working in the lab, but also working hard on spreading awareness about our team and our project, conducting interviews with doctors and scientists.
Jo has used her expertise from working in science education to help produce materials for educational visits, and draft the abstract and project description for the lab work she’s been focused on.
Viv has made sure that all the hard work she and the others are doing in the lab has not gone unnoticed on social media and has helped devise a lot of material for different presentations.
