Co-Founder and CSO, Geneoscopy

“BioGenerator played a critical and diverse role in Geneoscopy's development and maturation. From the financial, mentoring, and physical infrastructure support provided to launch Geneoscopy through the BioGenerator Labs five years ago, to most recently leading an independent diligence process to catalyze our Series B, which resulted in a key strategic investor joining the round, BioGenerator has been instrumental to our company's success.”
