Med Chem student Nick Au (Allan Rettie lab) was recently part of a team of UW graduate students who won a “Best Innovation Idea” prize in the 16th annual UW Business Plan Competition. The team is developing a “smart” polymer contact lens as an alternative delivery platform for people with diabetes.
The UW Business Plan Competition is produced by the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship at the Foster School of Business. They awarded $68,220 in seed funding to winners of the 2013 competition.
