About Us

From healthcare to energy production, climate change to global hunger – synthetic biology offers dramatically new methods to address our planet's largest problems. Recent advancements in synthetic biology mean that the limiting factors to progress are increasingly becoming creativity and ingenuity. Denver Biolabs is a community of interdisciplinary individuals - biologists, engineers, artists, computer scientists, and entrepreneurs - committed to working at these intersections to create solutions to pressing problems.

I think the biggest innovations of the 21st century will be at the intersection of biology and technology. A new era is beginning.

- Steve Jobs -

Meaningful discourse and intelligent policy require a well informed public, which is why our mission centers on providing open and accessible education and understanding about these technologies that will increasingly shape our lives.
