Carolyn Edelstein is a co-founder and Executive Director of OpenBiome, a nonprofit stool bank and microbiome research institute. She previously served as Director of Outreach and Public Affairs, where she oversaw OpenBiome's efforts to expand the availability of fecal transplantation across 1,000 hospitals and clinics, present its work to the public, and contribute to the discourse on the regulation of fecal microbiota. Previously, Carolyn worked at the US Agency for International Development, where she helped launch the Global Innovation Fund, a $200 million fund backed by foreign aid agencies from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden, and South Africa to test and support low-cost, high-impact interventions to improve global health and prosperity. She holds an MPA and a BA from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

Carolyn will share insights on how Open Biome helps fight disease through the harness of bacteria in our bodies, and lessons learned in non-profit organization management.
