HiveBio Community Lab Open Lab Hours & Events

Tonight we are celebrating the Grand Opening of HiveBio’s laboratory space. What does that mean for current and prospective members?

Our lab will be open for general use on weekends and most week nights. You can purchase a monthly membership, or pay the drop-in fee to use the facilities. All projects must be approved by the Science Safety and Ethics Committee. Please submit a project proposal form so we can provide feedback as soon as possible. A waiver must be signed to utilize the lab facilities, and safety protocols must be strictly followed.

Invite your friends to stop by during our Open Lab hours to have a tour of the lab and find out about our educational programs and resources.

Our Tuesday Night Discussion Group that normally would meet every two weeks at Kaladi Brothers Coffee will now be held in one of the meeting rooms at HiveBio, Building G of the Talaris Center. Our first meeting will be this coming Tuesday night at 7pm. Discussion groups are open to the public and a waiver is not required to participate.

We welcome everyone to the Grand Opening of HiveBio Community Laboratory. It is with great excitement and anticipation that we are making last minute preparations for our opening this Friday night at 7pm. Tour the lab, find out more about our objectives and educational programs, mingle with other biohackers and enjoy food and refreshments!

Our Current Projects list has recently been updated. Our first two projects involve creating a bacterial system for experimental genetics, and testing for a specific genetic repeat which is related to novelty-seeking characteristics.

Our address is 4000 NE 41st St, Building G, Seattle, WA 98105. We look forward to meeting you at the Grand Opening this Friday night!

HiveBio Lab Grand Opening

I’m happy to announce the Grand Opening of the HiveBio Community Laboratory! After much consideration we have decided upon a home for HiveBio. We are located at the Talaris Center just east of the University district with access to bus lines and ample free parking. Our lab is located in the west side of Building G on the south end of campus. We have around 800 square feet, including our research benches, offices and lab supplies. We are surrounded by koi ponds, willow trees, and a sense of serenity, the perfect location to foster creativity and teamwork!

Our address is listed below. Please feel free to share the flyer on social media. We welcome everyone to our Grand Opening regardless of scientific background. Find out what we are all about. The only thing you need to bring is your curiosity!


Get your tickets for Science on Stage!

Join us for a creative pairing of science, theater and ethical discussion
at Green Lake’s Bathhouse Theater!

The Northwest Association for Biomedical Research presents Science on Stage, Professional Readings of The Sequence by Seattle playwright, Paul Mullin.

Sequencing of the human genome was a public race – and a personal war!  Strong personalities, emerging technology and differing views on public vs. private DNA ownership fueled the race to obtain the first human DNA sequence.  Covering the story was a young journalist worried about her own destiny with breast cancer and the information that her genome sequence would uncover.

Stay for a post-play discussion of Biology and Ethics on October 12th with invited Scientists and Ethicists. Technology is making genetic sequencing faster and easier, and this information is being used to make medical decisions. Understanding how human genetic information is being used is now more important than ever!

Saturday October 5      2pm
Saturday October 12    2pm, post-play discussion at 3:45pm
Sunday   October 13    7pm

Tickets are $22
($20 for NWABR members)
