🧬Genetic Biohacking for fun
🥃Harsh Critic of how you make your old fashioneds
MISSION: TO MAKE GENETIC ENGINEERING AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE TO ALL
For scientists who have spent their entire early career in academia, what are the skills you would recommend they learn as they look to break into industry?
I’d really like to start a list of lab equipment that wasn’t designed to be lab equipment.— Lindsey O'Neal Yoder (@DrLindzyONeal) July 2, 2021
What does your lab use to save avoid over paying for something from a scientific supplier?
e.g. a light board for tracing/ drawing instead of a white light transilluminator
I have worked in a research capacity in academic, government, and industrial R&D environments. For ~5 years, I was the principal web developer (full-stack) and data/systems engineer for the Materials Project, a US government effort to aid data-driven discovery of energy-related materials.
🌍 Born in Frankfurt- Germany, but spend a lot of time in the city of Oktoberfest (Munich)
📚 My background is synthetic biology, DNA Nanotechnology/Origami
🧪 I'm postdoc in the Bathe Lab at MIT and currently educating myself on cell and gene therapy and entrepreneurship. Super interested in bio-manufacturing processes of nucleic acids - hit me up if you want to brainstorm how we can create sustainable drug manufacturing pipelines.
Who are others that nail scientific communication (helping practitioners think about their field differently, or helping the general public understand a complex field better)? How does one pursue a career in scientific communication today?
“We shall be rendering a service to reason should we succeed in discovering the path upon which it can securely travel."

👋 I'm Miguel Madero.
🧪 What are you currently working on? I'm in discovery mode so nothing concrete. On the side, I'm also helping with the organization of longhack.org and help other entrepreneurs.
💎 Any fun facts about you? It took me 4 years of living in Australia to appreciate vegemite, 4 years of living in the US to appreciate peanut butter, but only 1 week of being in Thailand to fall in love with all Thai food, and the hotter the better!
Reach out to me if you need help with business, startup advice, software, Growth or wanna chat about Longevity.
🌍 I am originally from Richmond, VA; now, based in New York!
📚 My background is in machine learning, omics (especially single cell), and computational chemistry.
🧪 I'm in John Chodera's lab at MSKCC, where I work on automating drug discovery for numerous therapeutic modalities.
🧰 For research tools, I've compiled all my favorites here: https://twitter.com/MichaelRetchin/status/1404511552368041986
👨🏫 The deeper I get into synthetic and chemical biology, the more I appreciate the superpower that is chemistry. Always learning!
🙏 I'm growing my team(s) at my nonprofit accelerator program. Much more detail and exciting announcements to follow soon.
💎 I'm a twin, and yes we did switch places sometimes when we were younger. I think nowadays people would notice pretty quickly. :)
Please reach out for anything at all. Career advice, startups, VC, whatever. I'm always happy to help!
