Chen’s sister Janice Chen plans to turn her startup into a $100 billion company

While the little brother is an Olympic champion, Janice also gained attention by co-founding a billion dollar biotechnology company called Mammoth Biosciences. She has made substantial progress in her work on gene-editing technology that could explain groundbreaking discoveries, such as the identification of bacterial and viral infections for the early detection of cancer.

Along with Janice Chen, Trevor Martin, Lucas Harrington and CRISPR gene-editing pioneer, Nobel laureate Jennifer Doudna are the other co-founders of the company.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world in 2020, the company has gained a lot of momentum in terms of funding and reach. However, Janice said, “Our intention is not to build and sell it, but to become a $100 billion company in next-generation CRISPR technology.”
