Tekla Labs, a recently formed organization of UC Berkeley and UCSF graduate students, aims to lower the barriers for doing science in low resource settings. We are developing a free online database of easy to follow do-it-yourself (DIY) instructions for the construction of scientific laboratory equipment. Our goal is to empower scientists at all levels all over the world (such as high school teachers, university researchers, and independent laboratories) to build their own research infrastructure at a low cost from locally available supplies. 

Todd Duncombe received his BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington in 2010. He is currently a PhD candidate in the UC Berkeley and UCSF Joint Graduate Group in Bioengineering and a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. Todd joined the Tekla Labs team in September 2010, shortly after its inception.
