Jason Wu is currently a senior at Montgomery High School with a passion for biological engineering. After conducting research on hepatic fibrosis at the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute at Rutgers University, he became concerned by how inaccessible lab instruments were outside of established research labs. With a few months of work, he successfully prototyped and crowdfunded DoubleGene's first product on Kickstarter - Polyfuge, a DIY open-source microcentrifuge for everyone. In college, he hopes to democratize other research instruments and expand his team with fellow undergraduates.
Our Kickstarter campaign was featured on the Arduino Facebook and Twitter page in August, 2017. Check out the post below!
