Northwestern University's Querrey InQbation Lab is hosting the FoundHer Stories series to amplify the startup stories of women scientist entrepreneurs.

Learn about Dr. Tina Boville's experience spinning out Aralez Bio in 2019 from her postdoctoral research at Caltech while working with Nobel Laureate Prof. Frances Arnold. Dr. Boville will share her story translating a novel enzymatic pathway for synthesizing non-canonical amino acids into a platform startup for efficient, scalable, and sustainable production of valuable chemicals for drug development and other applications. 

While the FoundHer Stories series is focused on supporting women innovators and entrepreneurs, all are welcome to register.

Please register in advance.
