We had some particularly exciting news this week – an article on PlayDNA co-Founder Dr Samantha Decombel was published by Forbes magazine! The article, written by Lorraine Sanders, Contributing Writer for Women 2.0, documents the journey of Dr Sam from her PhD at the University of Birmingham, to part-time Lecturer in Evolutionary & Conservation Biology, all the way through to the current day, in which novel artwork genetic company PlayDNA is really taking off alongside a new spin out you’ll be hearing much more of very soon – MuscleGenes!
“It is a real honour to be recognised as a female innovator in technology by such a prestigious magazine” says Dr Sam. “The last few years have been hard work, with researching the genes we think people will enjoy learning about and developing the novel artwork to illustrate this, but we’re finally starting to see it paying off. And of course I couldn’t have got this far without such a fantastic team around me, both in PlayDNA and MuscleGenes!”
