Genspace is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting culture, innovation and education in molecular biology for both children and adults. We work inside and outside of traditional settings,  providing a safe,  supportive environment for training and mentoring in biotechnology. In the summer of 2010,  we built the first-ever community laboratory,  a facility where we design workshops,  train students and innovate new technologies. As a membership-based community lab,  we offer New Yorkers the opportunity to work on their own projects in a safe,  Biosafety level 1 facility.
