Co-founder hub
Overview

"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'm a biologist with a strong background in molecular biology and zebrafish genetics. I have worked in chemical screening in zebrafish and my phD was focused in fin regeneration growth control. I believe biotech entrepreneurship is key for the development of novel therapies, not only because of the ideas themselves, but also because the motivation and team spirit involved in creating something new lead to the advance of science.

Singapore, Singapore + intro

Brief intro
Hi there! I'm a final year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. My research work on synthesis of nano-carbon materials for applications in energy and biology is extremely multidisciplinary & versatile in nature.

Furthermore, I'm an alumini of the Singapore-Stanford design programme ( 2012), where my team and I successfully designed and patented a medical device over the duration of 4 months.

With a belief that sometimes the most complex problems have
the simplest solutions, innovation, combined with a relentless will to strategically plan and execute is a trait that I have been continuously and successfully exhibiting over the course of my PhD studies.

London, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
I am a postdoctoral scientist in bioinformatics in the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London. My research involves statistical analysis of large volumes of biological and clinical data for the identification of gene targets for diagnosis and treatment of rare autoimmune diseases. Before that, I completed a DPhil in Statistics and an MSc in Computer Science at the University of Oxford.

I see biotech entrepreneurship as a great platform to apply innovative science to provide tangible solutions to the healthcare industry, that have direct impact to people's lives. I would be a great fit to any project with a data analysis component – I am especially interested in personalised medicine and genetics.
