Ben Noren received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wyoming where he researched tissue engineering and biomaterial design applied to translational medicine. He has spent time as a graduate research fellow at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory where he advised the physiology course in microfluidics and collaborated with the Harvard based Mitchison Lab researching spindle dynamics applied to developmental cellular biology.
Ben is the author of multiple peer reviewed publications related to biomaterial technologies published in journals including Lab on a Chip, ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering, and Current Opinion in Biotechnology. He has been awarded both flagship entrepreneurial awards from the University of Wyoming for commercialization of his research; the Fisher Innovation Challenge and the Ellbogen 50K Competition. He has received National Science Foundation I-Corps and INTERN awards to this same end.
Ben’s background as a collegiate Nordic ski athlete and passion for biotherapeutic medicine motivate his entrepreneurial efforts.
