III. Join the Yale iGEM Team! 

Interested in Genetic Engineering Research? Join the Yale iGEM Team! 

The Yale iGEM (International Genetically Engineer Machine) Team is a student-run undergraduate research team with its own fully-equipped Biology Lab. Using cutting-edge tools and techniques, we apply the principles of genetic engineering to solve real-world problems. During the school year, we host journal clubs and prepare team members for summer research. As a team, we carry out a research project over the summer and compete at the iGEM Jamboree, an international conference with attendees from over 200 universities. 

The entire research project is undergraduate designed, run, and owned. Team members will have the chance to get involved in areas such as laboratory research, website design, science outreach, and project fundraising.

IV. Apply for a Student Wellness Grant Today 

Applications are open on Yale Connect

The Student Wellness Grants are sponsored by Yale Well and the Office of the Secretary and Vice President for Student Life. All Yale University students and student groups are invited to submit grant applications for programs and events that further Yale Well’s goal to foster an environment where wellness is valued and intentionally embraced by students. The project should seek to address at least one of the eight areas of wellness – move well, eat well, mind well, rest well, love well, seek well, work well, and save well – and should strive to create an event or program that is creative and engaging for those involved. 

All grant applications are due by Friday, October 13th at 5:00 p.m. The Wellness Project Committee expects that all budgets and other supporting materials submitted as part of the grant application are as accurate as possible. The grants will be evaluated by the Wellness Project Committee, which includes students. Please note that if your grant is accepted, you will be required to submit a brief final report upon completion of the project. 

If you have any additional questions about applications, you may contact Steven Roets (
