    Andrea Carafa

    Affiliate, Bio-Impact and Innovation

    BioAndrea Carafa currently serves as Founding Emergence Fellow at Stanford and as Director of the Blackstone Launchpad powered by Techstars and Rachel Carson Lecturer at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has been named a member of the University of California Office of the President’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative, of the National Science Foundation America's Seed Fund Review Committee, and of the Fast Company Impact Council, an invite-only group of entrepreneurs, academics, investors, thought-leaders, and CEOs/top executives of companies such as Google, Intel, IBM, Paypal, Pfizer, and BlackRock. He has also been named a World Economic Forum Global Shaper, MIT Technology Review Innovators Under 35 Ambassador and Judge, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, Member of the Partnership on AI, and Delegate to the UN Science, Technology & Innovation Forum for the Sustainable Development Goals. His focus is on technologies and ventures for environmental sustainability and societal health, with shared prosperity in mind from day one.

    Prior to his current roles, he founded a consumer tech startup and a sustainability design venture, and conducted research and lectured about entrepreneurship, human-centered design and technology innovation at Stanford, the University of Milan Bicocca, CERN, the European Commission, Bocconi and more. Andrea chaired the Impact Entrepreneurship Initiative at President Obama's Global Entrepreneurship Summit and advocated for climate action and the creation of the Sustainable Development Goals at the UN. He was an EU Marie Curie Fellow in emerging technology for sustainable development and health, and contributed to shape Future Earth, a global sustainability research and innovation initiative announced at the UN Rio+20 Summit. He also co-created an EU Knowledge Alliance aimed at spurring innovation and entrepreneurship in European universities, and inspired CERN to launch CollSpotting, a data analytics platform helping science labs and companies to increase their technology transfer to society. He has been a speaker at institutions such as the World Economic Forum, European Commission, Expo, and UN, and his work and ideas have been featured by publications such as Reuters, Fortune, Fast Company, and the Huffington Post.

    Anthony Cesnik

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Bioengineering

    BioI have found joy in advancing the vision of enabling an understanding of biology at the proteoform level, peering into the cellular machinery in a way that reveals precisely which molecule is acting in the biological system. Recently, I have been working in Emma Lundberg’s lab on understanding how the expression of these molecules varies between individual cells in space and time. Emma Lundberg’s group has a wealth of experience in using microscopy to yield biological images that paint a picture of this cell-to-cell heterogeneity of protein expression information, and joining her lab has deepened my expertise in integrating datasets to perform innovative analyses of single-cell protein expression. I hope to extend this towards analyzing single-cell proteoform expression, understanding the heterogeneity and flux between these proteoforms in space and time, and digging into the fundamental insights about human biology these data may reveal.
