2019 Promega iGEM Grant Winners

Congratulations to the ten Promega iGEM Grant Award Recipients! Head to our Instagram story to see Promega Chairman and CEO Bill Linton announcing the winners, or check out the blog below to learn more about their projects.

Read about the winners


"We aim to provide a comprehensive solution by developing an automated field diagnostic system specific to N. ceranae to work in tandem with the treatment we made last year."

iGEM Bonn

"Our goal is to engineer plants to create ambient light through efficient naturally occurring bioluminescence systems."

Cairo University

"Reducing the concentration of salts in the water, especially NaCl, is our main objective."


"Team MSP aims to broaden the spectrum of surface receptors available by creating a synthetic genetic system which evolves new receptors capable of binding specific, user-defined molecular targets."

Northern BC

"The 2019 Northern BC iGEM Team will address the overdose crisis from a harm reduction perspective, creating an opioid sensor in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that can be used to test non-opioid recreational drugs for opioid contamination prior to consumption."

NUS Singapore

"We plan to extend the exponential phase of bacteria by making them undergo a 'sleep-wake' cycle, controlling the nutrient uptake rate of the bacteria and so extending the overall protein production window."

Sao-Carlos Brazil

"To produce food on a planet as extreme as Mars, we plan to apply synthetic biology tools to engineer a fermenting yeast that is able to amass melanin on its surface to become resistant to ultraviolet radiation."

iGEM Sorbonne Université

"We want to create an alternative way of producing palm oil in a green alga named Chlamydomonas reinhardtii."

Victoria Wellington

"Our goal is to produce a battery that is efficient, safe, and sustainable. Our contribution to renewable energy storage will be to improve an existing glycerol fuel cell."

NYU Abu Dhabi

"The NYUAD iGEM team aims to create a multiplex, affordable, modular, and flexible wearable device that can simultaneously and rapidly screen for multiple food and viral pathogens."
