Meyer chosen in startup project to prevent PTSD


February 25, 2014

Startups aiming to prevent PTSD, treat a rare genetic disease with no current treatment, measure a diabetic’s blood sugar with no need to draw blood and lower the cost of HIV treatment worldwide, have all been named to participate in MassCONNECT. MassCONNECT, MassBio’s life sciences and healthcare entrepreneur mentorship program, kicked off its first cycle of 2014 with a Technology Showcase, where the chosen entrepreneurs presented their ideas to a room of industry executives and potential mentors. For the next 8-10 weeks, these entrepreneurs (one of whom is Retsina Meyer, MIT alumna and former MIT Hugh Hampton Young Fellow) —chosen for their innovative technologies, products, or services—are paired with seasoned life sciences professionals for evaluation and advice as they work toward developing business plans, launching companies, and raising capital.
