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.

Oxford, United Kingdom + intro

Brief intro
Biotech offers one of the most promising areas with which entrepreneurship can transform our lives for the better. I seek projects that can truly make a positive impact on the world, and allow me to apply and further develop my key skills of Problem Solving, Software Engineering, Maths, Physics and Finance. As a Post-doc Researcher and Software Developer in the Maths Institute at Oxford University, I love learning and challenging myself. I aim to be as adaptable and flexible as I possibly can be, and the variety of work required in founding a Biotech start-up offers, I believe, great opportunities for my own personal growth.

Brief intro
I am a medical professional specializing in neurosurgery. I am an attending clinical neurosurgeon at the University of California in Los Angeles and I am experienced in treating complex spinal deformities using state of the art surgical techniques. I also have had the opportunity to work with machine learning technologies for biomedical image analysis during my research fellowships. I believe that combining machine learning with advanced biomedical image analysis can usher in a new era of cutting edge minimally invasive spine surgery. I also have substantial expertise in developing and deploying hospital picture archiving and communication system (PACS) systems after having done so during my residency years.

Brief intro
I am a Chemical and Biological Engineer (Bachelors from IIT Madras and PhD from Princeton University) with specific focus on utilizing engineering/mathematical principles for understanding biology and enabling drug development. The following are some examples of my work
1. FGFR signaling pathway has many receptors that activate intracellular signaling to different extents and lead to non-small cell lung cancer. Our modeling work helped identify the right combination of receptor inhibition that would get the most bang for your buck
2. Many research institutes are looking to develop nanoparticles of anti-tuberculosis drugs for faster treatment. Our modeling work helped identify which molecular classes are ideal for encapsulation and taking maximum advantage of the nanotechnology platform.

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.
