Harvard Guppy Tank: Elevate your Pitch with Xera Bio
November 15, 2023
You're invited to the next Guppy Tank event! Hosted by Harvard's Office of Technology Development and LabCentral. Harvard's life-science innovators will pitch their super-early-stage concepts to a panel of entrepreneurs and investors, seeking constructive feedback.
Featuring Dr. Erik Aznauryan, a Wyss Technology Development Fellow, this event focuses on genome engineering. With a background in Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, Dr. Aznauryan is pioneering the achievement of efficient and targeted genomic insertions of large DNA payloads, unlocking treatments for a wide range of disorders. He's developing a gene writing platform based on site-specific recombinases, small yet potent enzymes for gene insertions into genomic locations with precision and safety.
Following the event, enjoy a reception with food and drinks. Everyone is welcome!
