Universities Shift to Startup Mode
from Modern Healthcare
Food allergy professor Cathryn Nagler has become a celebrity of sorts. The University of Chicago's Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation gets emails almost every week from people — oftentimes parents of children with food allergies — looking for an introduction and asking if they can support her work. Nagler's startup, ClostraBio, develops therapies that prevent or treat allergic reactions to foods and other immune system diseases. Launched in 2016 with help from the Polsky Center, it has raised $4.5 million.
