While the little brother is an Olympic champion, Janice has also gained some spotlight by co-founding a billion dollar biotech company called Mammoth Biosciences. She has made substantial progress in her work on gene editing technology that might account for ground-breaking discoveries, such as identifying bacterial and viral infections to early cancer detection.

Apart from Janice Chen, Trevor Martin, Lucas Harrington and CRISPR gene editing pioneer, the Nobel Prize winner 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 finance 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.”
