Our Mission
The mission of the Harvard OpenBio Laboratory is to foster a collaborative community at Harvard centered around biology that moves the world forward.
We aim to change the paradigm of biological research by making the resources and funding to do impactful research accessible to all. We provide the space, resources, funding, and advising to help students turn their research visions into reality. Through this community, we hope to enable meaningful research and change the culture of undergraduate biology at Harvard and beyond.
