Cache DNA is on a mission to store the biomolecules of today in order to unlock the possibilities of tomorrow. After spinning out of MIT, their team graduated from the Illumina Accelerator and moved to MBC where they have been commercializing their core technology for preserving nucleic acids. February 29th is Rare Disease Day, and the Cache team is hoping to raise awareness about the gaps in clinical research that they are helping to address.
4 PM – 5 PM: Presentation and Q&A, to be followed by networking.
