Elizabeth Galbut, Luke Lee, Leah Sibener, and Liang Wu

Four Johns Hopkins University alumni were included on the 30 Under 30 list released by Forbes magazine last month, joining two startups with Hopkins roots that were also recognized.

The list features 600 people under the age of 30 who are making great strides in 20 different industries.

Elizabeth Galbut was recognized in the venture capital category. She earned an MBA from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School in 2015 and is the managing partner of SoGal Ventures, a firm she co-founded to invest in ventures from the U.S. and Asia that have diverse teams. Through the New York-based firm, Galbut has invested in at least 50 companies. In 2015, prior to SoGal Ventures, she co-founded A-Level Capital, a student-led venture capital firm that supports Johns Hopkins students and young alumni pursuing entrepreneurship.

Luke Lee and Leah Sibener are part of the 3T Biosciences team recognized in the health care category. Lee received his bachelor's degree in cellular and molecular biology in 2011, and Sibener received her degree in biophysics in 2013 before they co-founded the Silicon Valley-based company that uses machine learning to predict the chemicals present in cancer cells but not normal ones. The company uses genetic engineering to modify T cells, a type of white blood cell that targets those chemicals present in cancerous cells.
