The Cap City Biohackers are dedicated to demystifying and democratizing science (with an emphasis on biology and technology) for people of all backgrounds.
Our mission is to lower the barrier to entry to the life sciences by providing individuals, regardless of money or training, with the education and tools necessary to explore the biological world around them, thereby promoting scientific literacy and advancing an innovative community.
Founded by Drs. David Taffany and Jessica Fleming in Columbus in 2015, the Cap City Biohackers are a part of the world-wide DIYBio movement and the first established DIYBio group in Ohio.
Since its founding, the Cap City Biohackers have formed a strong community around citizen science, including monthly lectures, discussions, and hands-on demonstrations. The Cap City Biohackers is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
