I am writing to express my strong support of Dr. Crystal Icenhour's application to the Springboard program. Crystal has already demonstrated success leading another company (President of Phthisis Diagnostics), prior to her current role as CEO and Co-Founder of Aperiomics. Her work in the area of gene sequencing analysis is ground breaking and adds significantly to this very important field. Our understanding of biology has been revolutionized by the ability to sequence genomes; however we are in early days with regards to understanding the meaning of the sequencing output. Crystal and her team are making cutting edge innovations in this area that are relevant, in-demand for researchers and industry alike, and will lead us into the next era of biologic research. There is enormous commercial potential in this area. She is an extraordinary leader and knows how to position a company for success. She would benefit greatly from the Springboard network and mentoring experience.
Gifted scientist, true entrepreneur, focused, energetic, and high integrity are the qualities that come to mind when describing Dr. Crystal Icenhour. She is a proven innovator, entrepreneur, and fundraiser. She understands how to weave together scientific and operational needs and using available resources efficiently in order to produce positive and sustainable results. I have had the privileged to work with her on her first company, Phthisis Diagnostics, Inc.. I found her to be insightful, trustworthy and a visionary. She encourages the best in those that work with her. I believe that Aperiomics is in good hand and I expect another success.
