Are you interested in new medical technologies? So are we!
Our goal is low-cost, fast, and sensitive DNA analysis on a small portable chip. DNA analysis is a key goal in many fields such as forensics, pathology, genetics, etc. - but especially in medicine. DNA analysis can be used to predict/diagnose genetic diseases such as cancer. In addition to human DNA, RNA from viruses can also be analyzed, such as the SARS Cov2 virus.
Our first prototype already shows promising results, and this on a chip of only 1x1cm - cool, isn't it?
Currently, we are two who research new ideas and try to implement them in the lab. Franzi takes care of the tiny magic chip and Jan-Hendrik of the machine that can read the chip via a laser system. We work in UHH and DESY.
And now - we are looking for you to strengthen our business side as part of our core team and co-founder.
With you, we would like to apply for the Exist Forschungstransfer, start a company and bring our new technology to the market.
You should bring with you:
We will apply for the next round of Exist-FT (end of January 2022). If successful, the project will start mid-2022. Trough the Exist, we will get 100% E13 positions. As part of the core team, you will be co-founder and own part of the spin-off.
If you are interested, please send us an email with your CV and your motivation in few sentences before October 22nd. The deadline for the proposal is January 2022,
