Developing the first open source protocol to produce insulin simply and economically. Our work may serve as a basis for generic production of this life-saving drug and provide a firmer foundation for continued research into improved versions of insulin.
This project was started at Counter Culture Labs, in Oakland and we will be collobarting formally working on the projects every Sunday. This is general meeting where we get updates from each of the teams 8 working groups. There is an onboarding meeting for new members to learn more in depth about the project, the last Sunday of the month at 10:30am PST.

The Real Vegan Cheese (https://realvegancheese.org/) project is an award-winning collaboration between Counter Culture Labs and our sister lab BioCurious (http://www.biocurious.org/) in Sunnyvale, to make real cheese without using any animals!
Real Vegan Cheese is a not a cheese substitute! It all starts with regular old baker's yeast. Through synthetic biology, we engineer our yeast to become milk-protein factories. Our milk proteins are then combined with water and vegan oil to make Vegan Milk which is ultimately converted into Real Vegan Cheese through standard cheese-making processes - just like cheese made from cow or goat milk!
We alternate Admin and Science meetups every other week. This week will be an Admin meeting, so expect to talk about website design, business plans, improving our outreach efforts on social media, and more. Want more science instead, then join us next week.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all public meetings have shifted to ONLINE-ONLY. Please sign in on Meetup to see the Zoom connection info.
Join us for an introduction to the Teens Teaching Teens Program (http://bit.ly/tttbiocurious).
Teens Teaching Teens is a peer-to-peer biotechnology teaching community that seeks to empower the next generation of scientists by increasing the accessibility of science education. For the past few months, we at the TTT Student Board have been revitalizing the program to be student-run and student-led.
Teens Teaching Teens is always looking for new teachers. If you are interested in science and sharing that interest with other teens, please fill out our application as well as a class proposal. Please join us for this meeting on April 24th from 10 AM to 12 PM PST to learn more about the Teencher Program.
Please note TTT is a student-led organization. Hours will be informal and varying but you will be able to collaborate with other Teens on the projects. Join and get valuable teaching experience and, of course, Volunteering Hours!
