As a CEO, what’s your advice for a researcher who wants to launch a startup?
My main advice would be to get hands on experience in the industry. In my view, the combination of industry experience with academic skills is a good recipe for success. As a researcher, you have a broad academic background, so completing it with the insight of how a company operates is very helpful.
How has being a resident of JPOD @ Boston helped you advance your company?
I work closely with the JPOD oncology leadership team, who are very professional and are good colleagues. The team from JPOD was instrumental in helping me develop a good strategy to validate ORT’s early detection for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Early detection is considered to be an uncharted territory that requires a lot of validation creativity, but thanks to the help from the JPOD team, ORT’s blood test for AML is being validated by Pharma approved methods.
