2018 INNOVATION CHALLENGE
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Spotlight: 2016 Winner Enable Biosciences Now Finalizing its Early Diagnostic
It was the closest thing to a Eureka moment—at least as it happens today in science. While a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, chemist Peter Robinson had an idea, a test, and then a company. It was an entrepreneurial journey that brought him and his partners to T1D Exchange. Now he and his team at Enable Biosciences are close to finalizing their über-sensitive diagnostic for regulatory approval.
