As we continue to grow and welcome new entrepreneurial scientists, we've updated our website to better reflect our community and mission. Take a peek.
To help our scientists be more efficient and to save time, we have implemented a lab supplies program called "AYCE" for All You Can Eat. We now have an unlimited supply of tips, tubes, gloves, and other basic items stocked on open shelves in the laboratory.

GeneTether is an early stage biotechnology company developing improved gene editing technologies using Crispr/Cas, TALEN, and Zinc-Finger nucleases for human therapeutic applications. We are developing an approach that gives the DNA repair-templates the same "address" as the DNA strand breaks, ensuring their presence when needed for gene editing. This could improve gene editing efficiencies by over 100x while reducing unintended DNA damage and mutation.
