Founders' Corner: Starting a company in life sciences



The founders’ corner hosts inspiring founders of life-science spin-offs to talk about their founding story, their personal motivation, and what they would do differently. The event is exclusive for participants of the incubation program “LifeTechLab” by dresden¦exists.

For the first founders' corner, we feel honored to present Dr. Martina Schmitz, founder and chief scientific officer of the company “oncgnostics” in Jena. During her PhD work at the women's university hospital in Jena, the research group developed a new method to detect cervical cancer. Based on this discovery, she and her colleagues founded the oncgnostics GmbH in 2012. Their first product, the diagnostic test GynTect, detects cervical cancer earlier and more reliably than the current standard tests.

Oncgnostics GmbH has won several prizes for their innovative cancer diagnostics, e. g. the IQ Innovationspreis Mitteldeutschland in the cluster Life Science.

You may register for this event by January 24, 2019 with iris.steinebrunner@dresden-exists.de.
