What is a Community Lab

“we offer hands
-
on courses to the public, provide
extracurricular experiences for students, and
encourage scientific entrepreneurship,
particularly in the fields of molecular and
synthetic biology”


“The best way to inform the dialogue about 21st
century science is to have the stakeholders
understand it from a hands
-
on perspective “


-
Genspace

The Manhattan Model


Grassroots Science


12 staff members, including academic doctors,
students, and other scientists


Offers courses in biotechnology, intro to synth bio


Projects in ecology, microbiology, forensics, synth bio


Funding from donations, revenue from classes, lab
rental

What are the Benefits of a
Community Lab


Provides environment of
academic innovation


Fosters education the sciences


Produce entrepreneurship and
furthers the field of biotech


Increase Indiana’s role in
Biotechnology


What are the Challenges of a
Community Lab


Funding


Community Involvement


Educated Personnel


Community Regulations (e.g. bio
-
safety, etc.)


Limited Material Resource


How Can we Bring these Labs to
Indiana?


The Project Deliverables


Concise and Understandable protocol for the establishment
of Community Biotech Lab


Present data on the effects and challenges of Community
Labs


Create a feasibility report for three sites in Indiana


The wealthy, educated suburbs of
Indianapolis showing the
strongest growth in the state and
having access to biotechnology
resources are good starting
points/models for site
investigation/feasibility

Considerations of Feasibility


Commitment to:


Researching regulations and protocols


Interviewing and discussing with economic development
officers of townships and Indiana Cities


Gathering and presenting data in novel fashion


Does it fit within the budget?


Few actual expenses beyond transportation, office supplies



Who are the Contacts we Need to
Investigate Feasibility


Purdue Office of Entrepreneurship


Genspace and collaborative partners (e.g. DIY biotech)


Economic Development Offices of prospective sites


Purdue/IU/ND synthetic biology/microbiology teams
(technical contacts)


Practical Limitations to a Community Lab


Adequate Funding Sources (Corporate Sponsorship)


Target Audience


Too much Risk


Intellectual Property Rights


Sustainabiltity



BioMakers

Human Practices

The Project

-

Focus on Educational Outreach

o
Field Trips

o
Teacher Workshops

o
Open Space for High School iGEM Teams

-
Collaboration with Children's Museum




Benefits of Focus on Educational
Outreach


Long Term Funding:



NSF Grants Available


Purdue Branding


Purdue Extension


Curriculum with Education and Science Majors


Targeted Audience

Where We Are/The New Path

Develop a feasibility report for a collaborative Purdue
Education Extension Lab


-

Look for
Industrial/Educational
Partners


-

Discuss marketability with BioBuilder HighSchool workshop


-

Interview Teachers and Students



Metrics


How many kids decide to enter STEM Majors


How many kids come to Purdue
