Joanne Kamens PhD, Executive Director at Addgene is our special guest on Borderless Live on Wednesday, September 02 at 2pm CEST, 8am EDT.

Addgene is the Boston-based nonprofit global plasmid repository, renowned for its exceptional, award-winning, inclusive culture. Addgene was voted the best mid-size company in the 2016 Boston Globe Best Place to Work competition and ever since has been in the Top 20.

Addgene has been called the ‘Amazon of plasmids’. Receiving no grants and just a few ‘donations’ of capital, led by Joanne, Addgene’s mission is to accelerate research and discovery and distributed more than 6,000 Covid19 related samples to scientists in over 100 countries by March this year.

Discover what makes Addgene a special place to work and the techniques and practices established by Joanne that have created Addgene’s celebrated inclusive culture.
