We are TriDIYBio, a local community group focused on bringing together anyone interested in DIY biology, biotechnology,  and

citizen science.

We're starting both a community and a laboratory space for learning about and practicing cutting-edge science and biotechnology in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. As of July 2017 we have space at #24 Shoppers St in the Re-Use Arts District near Scrap Exchange.

If you would like to join us or learn more click on Contact Us to join our mailing list. We'll be sure to reach out to you with more information! 

Welcome to our Labspace!
