For the first Wildcatalyst Seminar of 2018, we are very excited to have Dr. Edgar Goluch, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University and Founder of QSM Diagnostics as our guest speaker. Formed in 2014, QSM Diagnostics is a Northeastern medical device spin-out based on Dr. Goluch’s research. The start-up is developing wearable sensors for infection monitoring in humans and animals that allow for quick detection and treatment of specific types of infections.
When launching QSM Diagnostics, Dr. Goluch took advantage of every start-up and mentorship resource he could find at Northeastern and the surrounding community, such as the NSF I-Corps program and business competitions. He also pursued several funding avenues such as angel investors and SBIR grants. He is currently on sabbatical from Northeastern working hard to get QSM Diagnostics off the ground.
In this seminar, Dr. Goluch will discuss his innovative research and provide the unique perspective of a founder in the early stages of a start-up. We are excited to hear about his experiences and the lessons he’s learned translating ideas and innovation into real and useful products.
