About the Speaker:

Cindy Wu is co-founder of Jelly, a startup in Honolulu building equitable platforms for scientists. Prior to Jelly, Cindy co-founded Experiment, a crowdfunding platform for scientific research. During undergrad Cindy was funded by Howard Hughes Medical Institute to design a universal immunotherapy. In 2011, she contributed to the iGEM team that won the World Championship for engineering an anthrax therapeutic for the U.S. Army. Cindy is the author of two peer-reviewed scientific publications. In 2012 Cindy dropped out of her PhD to build Experiment, a Y Combinator backed startup. Experiment's work has been profiled by leading publications including Science, Nature, The Economist and Science Friday. Cindy was named on the Forbes’ 30 under 30 list. Bill Gates recognized Experiment as “a solution to close the gap for potentially promising but unfunded projects.” Cindy serves on the Board of Directors at the National Speleological Society, a 77-year old membership organization serving caves and cavers.
