Unlock Biology’s Power to Sense and Respond to the World’s Challenges.
Stemloop’s Founding Story
Stemloop was founded in 2019 by Khalid Alam, Julius Lucks, and Michael Jewett with the vision of empowering anyone, anywhere, to sense the world around them.
Inspired by how microorganisms sense and respond to their environment, and enabled by breakthroughs in DNA sequencing and synthesis, the founders invented a new class of sensors that use the mechanisms and molecules of life to detect chemicals and produce visible signals.
Stemloop bootstrapped its early growth through public support from federal agencies. Now venture-backed, with commercial partnerships, exclusive global licensing for technology published in high-impact peer-reviewed journals, a state-of-the-art laboratory, and a world-class team… our story is just beginning.
