Cambridge's Community BioLab
A place for citizen scientists, entrepreneurs, makers and professionals to explore and create with cutting-edge biotechnologies.
Bringing making and biology together
Biological experimentation is intertwined with instrumentation and engineering. Biomakespace provides a space both for wet-lab biology research and open hardware prototyping and exploring.
Training and skill-sharing
Biomakespace provides training and new experiences for a broad range of people, including biologists, technologists, artists, students of all ages, members of the general public, and makers!
A historically important home
Biomakespace is housed in the old Laboratory of Molecular Biology site, which has seen groundbreaking scientific discoveries and was 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
We use creative design thinking and low-cost prototyping to test new ideas (like microfluidics with paper and sellotape!)
