For more than 20 years of clinical experience as a horse surgeon, I saw so many patients devastated by arthritis, without satisfying treatment outcomes. When I became an arthritis patient myself, I learned firsthand that treatment outcomes are shockingly similar in human medicine. Subsequently I founded PreGenerate, where our personalized approach offers a simple yet eloquent solution for the hundreds of millions of people suffering from this debilitating disease. I am honored to build this startup and vision as CEO with such a talented team and prestigious advisors.
COO & Microfabrication Engineer
With my engineering background, I was very much fascinated by the idea of combining biology and technology in an organ-on-a-chip model to improve quality of life for Arthritis patients. During my PhD at TU Wien developing a portable lab-on-a-chip for viral detection, I gained the skills necessary for microfabrication, teamwork and workflow optimization. As PreGenerate's COO and design engineer, I streamline operations and product development so that we can reach out to patients internationally.
Head of Research & Development
I wanted to join Pregenerate to apply my experience for more than 10 years in top international research laboratories into developing a new diagnostic setup and help equine and human patients to maintain their ability to walk until very late in life. I have a background in molecular biology and I believe with this I bring powerful knowledge to help shape the future of personalized medicine within Pregenerate. My additional qualification in pharmaceutical quality management is essential to bring our diagnostic service to the market.
Molecular biologist & Data analyst
When I first heard about Pregenerate and its goals to use data-driven science for improving quality of life for millions of arthritis patients, I knew I should be part of this company! Today, I work here in product development, and contribute with veterinary as well as data science expertise. I am convinced we will have a big impact on the personalized medicine-landscape and advance the end of animal testing in research.
Imaging specialist & Quality assurance manager
Despite my years in the pharma industry, I've always wanted to be part of a startup to further develop and expand my skills. The regenerative potential of cells and tissues has always fascinated me. After my PhD, I was looking for new challenges, and I found what I was looking for at Pregenerate. The innovative idea of analyzing personalized arthritis on our in vitro chip in a way that doctors can better plan individual treatment is specifically what attracted me. I hope that with this technology we can help many people and make their everyday lives easier.
