The News-Gazette interviewed Ran Chao for the Wired-In column this week. Chao is the 29-year-old founder of LifeFoundry Inc., an organization that completes research for biotech companies through the use of synthetic biology and robotics, which is now a tenant in EnterpriseWorks. He created the company during his time as a doctoral candidate at the University of Illinois. Chao and his collegues produced the first prototype for automative advanced biomanufacturing, and companies around the world are taking notice. Eventually, Chao plans to develop a system of algorithms that conducts the experiments as well as help humans make critical desicions.
