Carnegie Mellon University hosted Jonathan Rothberg (CIT'85) as the inaugural guest of The Innovators Forum, an new series connecting the world's top innovative minds with the university community.

Alumnus and university trustee Jonathan Rothberg has been a trailblazing innovator in the field of biotechnology for 20 years. He has founded several companies that sequence DNA and stand to reshape the fields of medicine, agriculture, nanotechnology and alternative fuels.

CMU Provost and Executive Vice President Mark Kamlet moderated the discussion, with a question and answer period afterward.

Since 2004, CMU has doubled the number of start-up companies created by its faculty and students and now stands as one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial institutions in the United States.

CMU recently introduced "Greenlighting Startups," a new initiative aimed at accelerating the university's already impressive record of turning campus innovations into sustainable new businesses.
