Bringing making and biology together
Biological experimentation is intertwined with instrumentation and engineering - Biomakespace will provide a space for prototyping and exploring.
Training and skills sharing sessions
Biomakespace will provide training opportunities and experience for many types of people from students to those wanting skills to enter the bioeconomy workforce in Cambridge.
A home with some biological history
The old Laboratory of Molecular Biology building which will house Biomakespace has seen groundbreaking scientific discovery and led at the forefront of technological advances such as nucleic acid sequencing, protein and antibody engineering and the invention of the scanning confocal microscope.

A creative space for prototyping and design
Design thinking and low-tech prototyping (like microfluidics with paper and sellotape!) can enrich experimental creativity.
Build the Biomakespace
Get involved in building the biomakespace - we need volunteers for many tasks and roles. Whatever your expertise and skill set, we'd love to hear from you.
