Shaun Moshasha

Executive Director, Open Bio Labs (Charlottesville, VA, USA))

Shaun Moshasha dove head first into the concept of community biology when he first heard about it in 2014 at the iGEM competition. He was enamored with the concept that you could actually conduct scientific research outside of any academic or industrial institution! Without any DIY Bio labs in his area, Shaun had no choice but to build one! It has been quite a wild ride since the start of the lab, but Shaun, perhaps with a couple screws loose, wouldn't have it any other way. Viva la Bio!
