Jean-Paul O'Brien
Me Biosciences, CEO

My core purpose is to unleash the greatness of the people around me. This starts with my family and continues with the teams I coach, the entrepreneurs I mentor, the students I teach, the customers of the businesses I help build, and the people I am privileged enough to recruit to run and grow those businesses.

I am building a world class network of like-minded Thinkers Doers. I look for what's next, work in cutting-edge markets, and thrive in fast-paced environments. I lead Black Lab Sports, a company that invests in, launches, and scales companies in HumanTech. I am also the Founder and CEO of Me Biosciences, Inc, launching a precision nutrition platform and individualized nutrition solutions.

Educating the people on the safe use of plant medicine has become the central focus of Del Jolly's life. After working for Charlotte's Web CBD as a business development lead, Del has since started Unlimited Sciences, a psychedelic research non-profit combining the power of data and lived experiences to serve the community, educate the public and inform common sense policy and practices. their first study with Johns Hopkins University is focused on the real world use of psilocybin.
