Please join us for our Pear Bioreactor: Bench to Business speakers series with Dr. Timothy Lu, CEO and co-founder of Senti Bio. In our Bench to Business speaker series, we feature top leaders across the Life Sciences and BioTech industry.

In this fireside chat, we'll learn more about Tim's journey from a PhD student at Harvard/MIT, to a professor at MIT, and then most recently the founder and CEO at Senti Bio, a publicly traded company developing a synthetic biology platform for next-generation cell and gene therapies. Along the way, Tim has founded several other companies including Sample6, Synlogic, and Tango Tx. We'll also hear Tim's perspective on the latest progress and challenges in the fields of synthetic biology and cell therapies.

We’ll be at Pear HQ in Menlo Park and will provide food and drinks. See you there!
