Let’s look back at our July

July in the eyes of our Team Manager Nick

“Over the last few weeks we have, in addition to entering the lab, been able to meet more regularly face-to-face with one another, while of course maintaining the appropriate social distancing. Now we are starting to get the first glimpses of what our hard work is creating – and it’s exciting!
While experiencing some of the “all you can eat” restaurants in Delft, we have also been able to get to know each other on a more personal level. This has been really nice as it has allowed us to enjoy the true iGEM experience; we learned about our different backgrounds and our shared passion for synthetic biology. It’s is one of the aspects that’s really bringing us together as a team.

As we approach the halfway mark of our full-time project, the team has managed to take a short holiday break here and there to help ensure everyone is refreshed and energized. We can now focus on presenting a project that encompasses everything that we have learned and is an expression of who we are as a team. As we look to the second half of the project, we are all enthusiastic and ready for the hard work ahead of us during the coming months – “bring it on!” as they say.”
