Rheomics, Inc.: Diagnosing cancer using mechanical biology

Speaker: Ricky Spero, vice president of product development, Rheomics, Inc.

For the past decade, UNC Prof. Richard Superfine (physics and astronomy) has been studying the role physics plays in a wide range of diseases, from cancer to blood clotting disorders. His lab’s discoveries led to exciting new technology that Rheomics, Inc., a new UNC spinout and participant in the Carolina Launch Pad at RENCI, is working to turn into a next-generation cancer diagnostic. Ricky Spero, the company’s VP of product development and a post doctoral associate in the physics and astronomy department, will discuss the business, the product and how RENCI is helping the company get started.
