Creating tools for better science!

Hi there, my name is Jan and I have a decade of experience with both UX design and front-end dev. In the last few years I’ve been building Phage Directory (, a (bootstrapped/self-funded) startup to develop a platform for developing viruses (called phages) as a replacement for antibiotics! Read about us here:

I’ve been getting into a lot of microbiology, and man the science world is sorely lacking in good tools. The publishing industry has a ton of problems. I think something like p2p payments could completely upend the incentives of peer reviewed science publishing, so that’s what I’m working on the side, but something we’re interested in tying into our startup!
