The Chronicle of Higher Education covers OpenBiome


David Glenn from The Chronicle of Higher Education featured OpenBiome in the story, “Student-Led Project Banks on Promise of Fecal Transplants” on February 3rd.  The full article is behind a paywall, but here is an excerpt:

“By the end of the weekend, the two graduate students [Carolyn Edelstein and Mark Smith] and James Burgess—another friend from their Princeton days—had hatched a plan. They would open the world’s first public stool bank, offering prescreened, frozen fecal specimens to hospitals around the country. What the Red Cross has done for blood, their project—known as OpenBiome—would do for feces.”
