CATALOG Welcomes New Team Members
We are welcoming three new members to the team. Devin Leake joins us as our new Chief Science Officer. Before joining CATALOG, Devin was the Head of DNA Synthesis at Ginkgo Bioworks and prior to that worked at Gen9, Thermo Fisher, and Dharmacon. Milena Lazova, our new Scientist, was previously a postdoc at MIT and also worked as a solution consultant at SHYFT Analytics. Our newest member, Sarah Flickinger, joins as our Synthetic Biologist and previously worked in the environmental science field.
We’ve also been busy raising more funding, speaking at conferences, and developing our technology. We’ve now raised a total of $9M, including a $4M round in June. We also have additional venture debt funding slated for July. We are thrilled to welcome new investors Prelude Ventures, Line Corporation, and Day One Ventures into our network.
If you were attending the Milken Global Conference this year, you may have seen Hyunjun present during the session, “Things that will blow your mind”. The video of the presentation is available above. Voice of America covered the event and that video is available as well. In April, Swapnil gave a presentation at the XLDB conference at Stanford.
Of course, while all of this was happening, our main focus has been on technical development. We’ve made some exciting strides. Stay tuned for our announcements in the coming months.
