Co-founder hub

"OneStart is a colossal stimulus for university entrepreneurship at all levels from undergraduates to academic staff."

– Hagan Bayley, Co-founder of Oxford Nanopore

The OneStart Co-founder Hub gives you the chance to build your perfect team or join a biotech startup.

All teams are advised to browse this hub to complement their teams with co-founders. One of our judging criteria will be the breadth of expertise within your team.

If you do not have an idea of your own, but experience or skills that would be useful to a bio-entrepreneur, register now as a co-founder. Our goal is to link people with ideas with those who can help them realise it.

Send an email now to somebody below, and who knows, you might be picking up an oversized cheque with them in May 2016.

Brief intro
I am keen on improving the living quality of human being, and biotech is a way to achieve that goal. Entrepreneurship is always a great opportunities and bring great experience for a PhD student.
Specialized in Physics with research interest in Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamic simulation, I hope to contribute building up good biological model and provide simulation result as well as construct experiment to test the validity of the idea.

Brief intro
Development of precisely tuned polymer peptide-drug conjugates for drug delivery
Codelviery of drugs for cancer treatment is a routine approach in clinics. However, the treatment poses several issues, such as different cellular uptakes and biodistribution of two different drugs. The development of carefully tuned polymer-peptide vectors would allow site specific attachment of each drug to the polymer-peptide backbone, hence fixing the molar ratio of two drugs per polymer chain.
