The Global Community Bio Summit is hosted by the Community Biotechnology Initiative at the MIT Media Lab. It’s a space for the global community of DIY biologists, biohackers, biomakers and members of independent and community laboratories to convene, plan, and work together for the evolution of this movement. Since 2017, the Community Bio movement has come together annually at the Summit to share, discuss, collaborate and frame the future of independent research in the life sciences.

“Our shared purpose is to: Fundamentally transform life sciences & democratize biotechnology to inspire creativity and improve lives by organizing life science change-makers and bioenthusiasts to build an inclusive global network, cultivate an accessible commons of knowledge and resources, launch community labs and projects, and enable local educators.”
