photo of WaqWaq is a Masters student at Warwick following an Undergraduate degree at the same uni. He is studying under supervisors Miriam Gifford and Vardis Ntoukakis, investigating the hidden mechanisms of innate immunity. He was mainly involved in the experimental side of the project, the interlab study and human practices. Also provided entertainment, wearing inappropriate clothes in the harshly air-conditioned computer lab and his questionable drawing skills.
photo of LeoLeo is studying Biochemistry at Warwick, not straying far from his home town of Coventry. He was key to sponsorship, always keeping us stocked with free gloves.
photo of ChrisChris is studying Physics at Warwick and was our honorary computer scientist taking the wiki by storm. He was also a major part in our data analysis and was driven almost insane by biologists and their "continuous lack of enough repeats and far too many abbreviations".
photo of IvaIva has ventured furthest from home, coming from Bulgaria and is studying Engineering at Warwick looking to specialise into biomedical engineering post uni. She took a shine to the lab work deeming everything "so adorable" and kept a meticulous lab book where you could find anything and everything experiment related. She was infinitely helpful, coming in at weekends and staying late every evening in order to complete the tasks at hand and studying for her exams alongside.
photo of HassanHassan is a Mathematician at Warwick and inadvertently found himself leader of the team and resident travel agent. He also took a firm hand in organising and keeping on top of the team while developing models for many of the parts in the meantime. Unfortunately developing an allergic reaction to a tree he had come "very close to touching" outside the lab he refused to dine al fresco with the rest of the team on the (rare) hot summer days.
photo of DanAfter briefly lapsing his strong vegan beliefs and accepting the use of fetal bovine serum and calf intestinal alkaline phosphatase in the lab he took charge of the measurement study and put his controversial views to good use at the forefront of our human practice ventures. He spurned interesting and heated debates about the project and its applications as well as its environmental impacts.
photo of ChelseyChelsey is currently studying for a Masters in Chemistry following a 3 year undergraduate course in Chemical Biology at Warwick. She helped Dan in them measurement study and human practices area.
photo of CarrieCarrie studies biomedical science at Warwick and played a major role in the experimental side of the project. She was particularly crucial to the testing in human cells which she particularly enjoyed and successfully tested the IRESs and the aptazyme following some set backs in transfection. Despite her tendency to fall asleep unannounced she played a key role in the experimental planning and aquiring of results.
photo of BenBen was king of the modelling, taking major steps forward in the development of both stochastic and deterministic models as well as creating a programme to speed up the analysis of plates measured in the tecan, instructions for and details of which can be found in the modelling section of our wiki.
photo of AlfonsoAlfonso was our PI with a PhD in theoretical Physics he moved over to Synthetic Biology, shortly after which he involved himself in iGEM in 2004 and has never looked back. He is currently investigating RNA technologies.
photo of SianSian was our secondary supervisor with a PhD in plant biological clocks she aided in experimental design and kept us on track giving us our initial safety briefing and crash course in cloning.

It can be easier to use a text editor like Sublime Text (with the HTML syntax) to write this up. Alternatively, for some more nuanced tips, learn about Dave Matthews and his fabulous medicinal properties.
