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.

Arundithi Ananthanarayanan
Sinagpore, Singapore + intro

Brief intro
Biotechnology or Biomedical engineering is one of the disciplines has an immense outreach, especially in terms of healthcare. Although, not trained in medicine, the understanding of disease mechanisms and detection has always fascinated me.
I am currently a PhD student at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore pursuing my thesis on the synthesis of nano particles, especially graphene and applications in sensing and imaging. I have experience on material synthesis and characterization, I have also worked on fluorescence sensing and fundamental studies like fluorescence imaging.
Apart from this I also have limited knowledge on drug delivery techniques and basic molecular biology techniques.

Brief intro
I have an idea for a new pharmacological intervention for asthma and I am looking to develop a team to enter the OneStart competition. This is a unique intervention, which is targeting the smooth muscle constrcition and bronchospasm component of asthma. While I have a background in LifeSciences and government, I am looking to add members to my team with experience in Business, pharmacology, marketing, or respiratory physiology. Any experience with patents is also appreciated. Message me if you are interested and I will provide more information about the project!

Matthew Miell
Stanford, CA, United States + intro

Brief intro
Originally from the UK, I received my PhD from Edinburgh University studying chromatin structure in Robin Allshire's laboratory before moving to Stanford to enjoy the Californian weather as a postdoc in the Biochemistry department.

My current research in Aaron Straight's laboratory studies the regulation of protein networks at the centromeric region of chromosomes. This work aims to better understand how cells become cancerous by identifying how key centromeric protein complexes interact and are regulated to prevent chromosome mis-segregation - the most common hallmark of human solid tumor cells.

As well as using molecular cloning and mammalian tissue culture techniques, my work specializes in the use of single molecule imaging, protein production / purification, and mass spectrometry.

Van Dung Pham
Quebec, Canada + intro

Brief intro
I worked with E.coli metabolic pathways which give the relationships among compounds and the conversion of a certain mass of precursor material to another mass of products during a particular time period such as GABA and Malic acid.
I also worked in the field of molecular biology with the bacterial two-component regulatory system, which serve as a basic stimulus-response coupling mechanism, allowing organisms to sense and respond to changes in many different environmental conditions.
Presently, I am working in project to determine the protein structure and function of some Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria for drug-designing.
