Teaching and Training Activities

Darren teaches applied molecular and cellular biology to undergraduate and masters students and spearheads UCL participation in the International Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) competition, serving also as a competition judge. iGEM provides an opportunity to teams of students from across UCL to work on their own synthetic biology projects. He also teaches so-called 'DIY' molecular biology to students on UCL's groundbreaking BASC programme, introducing students to community laboratories such as the London BioHackspace. Darren drew on his extensive experience of teaching and supervision to edit and co-author the Synthetic Biology Handbook (CRC Press) that is now used as a standard text at UCL.
