Team:Montgomery Cougars NJUSA/Team


Our Team

The Montgomery iGEM team is a relatively young team, comprised of mostly juniors, sophomores, and freshmen. What we lack in seniority, we make up for in passion and dedication! When starting up, our club divided members into different sectors, which would function together like a well oiled machine. The four sectors in which members specialized were Research and Development, Operations, Tech, and Public Relations. As our very first year as a team progressed, we discovered that having all members contribute to each sector equally was far more successful than restricting each individual to only one.
