Dr. Scott Vu is the CEO of RiboWiz Scientific, headquarted in Raleigh, North Carolina. At the age of 15, Dr. Vu began his collegiate education at NC State University where he would triple major in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. During his undergrad he began working on a project with his mentor, Dr. Donald Bitzer, and hoped to develop a biophysical model that would improve the time and costs associated with genetic manipulations in bacteria. A project that started as a teenager developed into a Ph.D. and a company with a disruptive and enabling technology. He was able to design his proprietary Riboscan™ software to quickly and accurately optimize genes within bacterial species to maximize protein production.
