Innovation & Entrpreneurs: Serial entrepreneurs launch own diagnostics-focused company in statePublished: Tuesday, February 23, 2016 By: Scott Meacham Source: NewsOK
I get really excited when I see an Oklahoma startup improving the lives of people who have incurable debilitating disease.
That's the story of Progentec Diagnostics, a startup that is focused on developing breakthrough diagnostics. The firm's initial focus is on developing a diagnostic test to identify patients at increased risk for flare in lupus, an incurable autoimmune disease that afflicts 1.5 million patients in the U.S.
Progentec CEO Sanjiv Sharma and his co-founding partner, Mohan Purushothaman, who serves as Progentec's president, are serial entrepreneurs with broad experience in the pharmaceutical industry.
