London, Ontario, June 10, 2015 – Designer Microbes Inc (“DMI”) and their gofundme campaign to provide scholarships for local youth was featured on CTV news on June 10th, 2015. DMI’s gofundme campaign was created to offer to three eager fledgling college students the opportunity to secure meaningful positions in their field of training in a challenging biotechnology market.  The proceeds raised would fund the materials and salaries for the students so that they could be trained by Dr Bogumil Karas, a leading international scientist in genome engineering. Dr Karas is the President and CSO of Designer Microbes Inc. He has published in leading scientific journals such as Nature and Science, worked with Nobel Laureate and Distinguished Scientists in San Diego, California, USA and has influenced the field of genome engineering or synthetic biology. “I strongly felt that we, together, can create a defining moment and offer a career kick-start to some very bright youth in the local London community”, said Dr Karas. “They will be trained in a field that is cutting-edge and is positioned to make a deep impact as we transverse into the genomics world and change how we treat medical disease”, continues Dr Karas.
