Diversity in science is deplorable. It perpetuates all the inequalities that have oppressed people through a system that focuses on where you went to school, who you know and your social status.
The Central Dogma Collective(CDC) is changing science by making it open and accessible to anyone who wants to participate.
We do this by live-streaming and documenting step-by-step complicated experiments and breaking them down so anyone can do them.
Our fight has been fraught with battles with the FDA, California Medical board and the State of California. Despite all this we keep pushing on because we believe science and medicine to be human rights.
Check out our weekly livestream Sundays at 11AM PT
Below are the current members of The CDC
Dr. Josiah Zayner
is constantly pushing the boundaries of Science outside traditional environments. He started Biohacking during his Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics at the University of Chicago, creating The Chromochord in his apartment, the world's first musical instrument that uses engineered protein nanotechnology. After his Ph.D., Josiah received a prestigious fellowship to work with NASA's Synthetic Biology program, engineering bacteria to help terraform Mars. Now he is the Founder and CEO of The ODIN, a company that is teaching people how to do genetic engineering at home. Besides starring in the recent Netflix documentary Unnatural Selection, his work has been featured in the New York Times, Time, Scientific American and NPR, among many others.

is a biohacker and dog breeder working on projects to improve access to genetic engineering technology. With no degree or laboratory David is a self taught genetic engineering. With a lab built from home made and used laboratory equipment he's been able to bootstrap genetically modified organisms at a fraction of the typical costs. His projects focus on developing more accessible methods of gene editing that allow breeders to remove genetic disease in dogs.
David is focused on making powerful new biotechnologies accessible so that they can drive rapid innovation. His work has received coverage all over the world including BBC, MIT Technology Review, New Scientist, Showtime and a 4 part documentary on Netflix called "Unnatural Selection".
