'''The BioBricks Foundation (BBF)''' is a not-for-profit organization founded by engineers and scientists from MIT, Harvard, and UCSF with significant experience in both non-profit and commercial biotechnology research. BBF encourages the development and responsible use of technologies based on BioBrick&trade; standard DNA parts that encode basic biological functions.

Using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts, a synthetic biologist or biological engineer can already, to some extent, program living organisms in the same way a computer scientist can program a computer. The DNA sequence information and other characteristics of BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts are made available to the public free of charge currently via MIT's [http://parts.mit.edu/ Registry of Standard Biological Parts].

Any individual or organization is welcome to design, improve, and contribute BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts to the Registry. For example, in the summer of 2007, over 600 students and instructors at 60+ universities around the world are making, sharing, and using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts as part of the [http://parts.mit.edu/igem07/index.php/Main_Page International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM)] competition.

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program, supported by the National Science Foundation, is a multi-disciplinary doctoral fellowship program for students interested in the science and engineering of bioactive interfaces and devices. Faculty members involved in the IGERT program are from the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical and Materials Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Anatomy and Neurobiology, Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry,the Center for Biomedical Engineering and the College of Pharmacy. Graduate students participating in the IGERT program receive their Ph.D. in one of these areas while benefiting from a host of multidisciplinary education and research activities in bioactive interfaces and devices. The research program is focused around three integrative themes: Novel Bioactive Architectures, Cell/Protein Interactions at Interfaces, and Integration Into Devices.
