Female Scientist



  Hello! I am Martina Curcio and honored to be the president of SynBio. I study Biomedicine at UZH. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, baking and sports. I am passionate about synthetic biology, virology, immunology and developmental biology.


Vice President Finance

Hi, my name is Jannik and I am a biology student at the UZH. I first came into contact with synthetic biology during my first year of studies. Ever since then, I was fascinated by it. I joined SynBio UZH through the participation in the UZH iGem 2021 team. The possibilities synthetic biology offers are endless, which is why I want to give more people the ability to come into contact with it.

As VP Finance and board member of SynBio UZH I can reach that goal, since SynBio UZH is a community that shares my interest in synthetic biology and provides a platform for discussion and education.



Vice President Communications

I did my Bachelors in Biology at UZH and have moved on to study Cell Biology in my Masters at ETH. While taking part in the 2019 iGEM competition, I cofounded SynBio in 2019. I'm very enthusiastic about cell and developmental biology (pretty pictures!), but also about literature and ethics in the field of biology! SynBio is a great platform to exchange thoughts on the current advances in biology.


Vice President Professional Relations

I am a biomedicine student and part of the board since 2019. I was always fascinated by how biological processes work. Synthetic biology gained my interest as it changed my perspective on biology and SynBio is a community where I can share my excitement for synthetic biology with other students.



Vice President Events

Hey, I’m Nic and I study biology. Synthetic biology fascinated me ever since first coming into contact with it. SynBio represents a community of fellow students sharing this passion. I joined the board as VP for events to offer my contribution to building and expanding this great community.


Vice President iGEM

I study Biology and Neuroinformatics at UZH and have a special interest in Biology that bridges the gap between molecular biology and modern technology. I joined SynBio through my participation in iGEM2020 and have decided to join the board to pass all that I learned on to future iGEM teams. I think the SynBio and the iGEM community are an excellent to build exchange opportunities for the topic of synthetic biology and I'm excited to be a part of this community.
