JLABS | Profile - Colleen Cutcliffe from Whole Biome

What is the problem you're trying to solve?

We are building interventions and diagnostics which target the microbiome.

How is what you're doing different than other attempts to solve this problem?

We use a high resolution data platform to identify novel targets. As a result, our targets are distinct from anyone else's.

Why are you passionate about what you're working on?

Improving health using all natural products with rigorous scientific and medical data is worth spending time on!

Why did you choose science as a career?

I chose science as a career back when I was in college because I realized that improving health was the way I wanted to contribute to our world.

Why are you passionate about what you're working on?

Improving health using all natural products with rigorous scientific and medical data is worth spending time on!

What is one piece of advice you’d give to young women in the life science sector?

The one piece of advice I would give to women (and men) in the life science sector is to seek out mentors who you have a personal connection with. These are the people who will guide you, help you avoid pitfalls and be there for you in those dark hours when you feel overwhelmed and incompetent. They will boost you up when you need them and they will put you in your place when you need it too!
