Best Business Idea

Drs Nuno Reis and Alexander Edwards with Augustyna Kret who organised the NACUE conference

CEB Researchers have won "Best Business Idea" at the NACUE Ventures Academy, hosted by IdeaSpace at the Hauser Forum in Cambridge, 28th April 2010.

Drs Nuno Reis and Alexander Edwards were presenting their plans to commercialise a novel technology for "Barcode" immunoassays that is highly suitable for Personalised Medicine and Point-Of-Care Diagnostics. The technology allows simple and fast quantitative detection of multiple analytes in a manner analogous to a barcode reader. The team hope to commercialise this promising technology that exploits research findings from the Polymer Fluids and Bioscience Engineering groups led by Professor Malcolm Mackley and Professor Nigel Slater in the department. These findings led to a recent patent application and a "Follow-on-Fund" grant from BBSRC.

NACUE is a national organisation that supports and represents university enterprise societies and student entrepreneurs to drive the growth of entrepreneurship across the UK.
