Chris is a renowned inventor and expert in molecular biology and DNA sequencing. Previously, he provided vision and leadership that allowed NuGEN Technologies to rapidly expand into the emerging next- generation sequencing market. While at Merck Research Laboratories, he developed assay technologies that revealed microRNA dynamics in colorectal cancer and global copy number variation in cancer genomes. His intellectual property portfolio has formed the basis of several products commercialized by major life science tools companies. Chris’ work has been published widely in leading scientific journals. He earned Chemistry degrees from the University of California at Santa Cruz (B.S.) and the University of Oregon (Ph.D.).

Lee P. Lim, PhD

Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder

Lee is a pioneer in deciphering the complex biology behind genome sequences. His work has led to fundamental discoveries in basic RNA biology including important contributions to the miRNA field. At Merck Research Laboratories, he pioneered the use of miRNAs as plasma biomarkers, discovered a miRNA component of the p53 tumor suppressor pathway, developed miRNA mimics for anti-cancer therapeutic applications, and uncovered widespread miRNA targeting of transcripts. Lee received a B.S. in Biology from Stanford University and completed his graduate work in the laboratory of Nobel Laureate Dr. Phillip Sharp at MIT. His work has been featured in top scientific journals such as Nature, Cell and Science; and is a recipient of the AAAS Newcomb Cleveland Prize.
