The MCBI Green Team was founded in 2021. Our mission is to conduct research at the department of Molecular Cell Biology and Immunology in a more sustainable manner. Furthermore, we aim to inspire other departments within Amsterdam UMC and VU University, and other research institutes, to do the same. To achieve this, we are actively collaborating with local and (inter)national green teams and sustainability initiatives. 

The MCBI Green Team consists of a diverse range of people representing PhD students, postdocs, technicians, core staff and principle investigators.
