Judging for the second annual Sacramento Region Innovation Awards wrapped up recently and many of the judges were winners from last year’s Innovation Awards, including last year’s winner in the medical and health technology category, Evolve Biosystems.

Evolve Biosystems is a privately held microbiome company dedicated to developing the next generation of products to establish, restore and maintain a healthy newborn gut microbiome.

I sat down with Tracy Shafizadeh, Director of Scientific Communications, to chat about Evolve Biosystems, their experience participating in last year’s Sacramento Region Innovation Awards, as well as innovation in our region.
