About Justin D

I am currently a postdoc at Stanford, where I also earned my PhD in 2016. My thesis focused on CRISPR technology development in yeast. I have developed a new technology for high throughput precision genome editing that I am working to commercialize. I am looking for a cofounder with industry experience, especially someone with industry experience in the fields of metabolic engineering and strain engineering.
