BME Teaching Assistant Professor Ross Petrella, BME Assistant Professor Michael Sano and their team shared 1st place in this year’s eGames, NC State’s annual startup competition. The team’s project “Gradient Medical: ACE (Algorithmically Controlled Electrotherapy) to target and eliminate cancerous tumor cells” won $25,000, which can be used for critical early-stage business expenses.
All year, NC State entrepreneurs have been developing their ventures in preparation to compete in the 2021 eGames, awarding a total of over $100k in cash prizes. There are two tracks within the eGames competition: the student track and the Daugherty Track for officially registered startup companies who have licensed NC State intellectual property in the past three years. This year the Daugherty Track had two teams tie for first place. Congratulations to team members Chris Fesmire, Darren Dasburg, Matt DeWitt, Michael Sano, Ross Petrella!
