    Co-Founders, Trace Genomics

    RSVP

    The Trace Genomics microbiome sequencing platform enables screening of disease-causing microbes and interpretation of millions of beneficial organisms in the soil. Their machine learning platform enables simple integration of soil microbiome information into with field management information to help farmers identify optimal management conditions that increase soil health and sustainability as well as crop yields. Their innovative technology has received notable media coverage in Forbes, TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, AgFunder, and Fast Company, and was most recently listed by Forbes as one of the 25 most innovative Ag Tech startups.

    About Diane Wu
    Diane Wu, PhD completed a BSc in Computer Science and Molecular Biology at SFU (Vancouver, Canada) and a PhD in Genetics at Stanford University. She was awarded a Stanford Graduate Fellowship and published her thesis on the cover of Nature Structural Molecular Biology, advised by Nobel Laureate Dr. Andrew Fire. Diane then joined the machine learning team at Palantir Technologies as one of their first data scientists, where she built predictive models for healthcare, merchandising, law enforcement, and fraud detection.

    About Poornima Parameswaran
    Poornima Parameswaran, PhD completed her BS in Molecular Biology at UT Austin, a PhD in Microbiology & Immunology at Stanford University with Nobel Laureate Dr. Andrew Fire, and her postdoctoral fellowship with MacArthur Fellow Dr. Eva Harris at UC Berkeley’s school of Public Health, where she also worked with the Ministry of Health in Nicaragua.

    RSVP

    What is HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN and how can it help you build more awesome products and businesses? Why is EXPERIMENTATION AND PROTOTYPING about more than scientific or market validation? How can they become integral parts of your innovation process and help you forge ahead when you feel stuck? When can DOING AND MAKING be more powerful than thinking and meeting?

    • Use tools developed from human-centered design theory to strengthen the work you do in science and business as you create awesome products and companies
    • Work collaboratively to build teams that accomplish amazing things together
    • Communicate more effectively with colleagues and investors for maximum impact
    • Identify new approaches to solving hard problems when you get stuck
