for Planned Serendipity

In science, great discoveries are deemed "serendipitous" and often compared to finding a needle in a haystack. They appear irreproducible - but we are tackling the unprecedented challenge to develop technology that quickly and precisely leads us to great discoveries on a repeated basis.

Objective

Science builds on reproducibility, with one of the fundamental principles of the scientific method stating that an experiment must be reproduced or replicated to verify whether a hypothesis is correct. However, most discoveries in science were stumbled on "serendipitously" with minimal chance of repetition. Through this project we want to cast aside the time-consuming trial-and-error process and transform "scientific serendipity" into "planned happenstance," thereby causing a revolution in the field of life science. We hope this new technology creates an industrial foundation that advances the world to a new era beyond our imagination.
