High-octane action movies and sci-fi thrillers are not the only images best viewed in 3D.
Just ask Laura Schrader, a onetime medical device consultant who recently joined 3D Biomatrix as its new CEO.
The Ann Arbor, MI-based startup, which spun off last year from the University of Michigan, is developing ways for drug researchers to test their therapies on cells with three dimensions. Scientists can better screen drug candidates on cells that offer a more realistic human response to potential therapies, Schrader says.
“Our cells exist in a 3D space, not in a 2D petri dish,” says Schrader, a former college basketball star and a member of the College Athletic Hall of Fame.
Explaining why she took the job, Schrader says 3D Biomatrix “seemed like it has the best legs to be successful for a while, to make the leap from spinout to a commercial entity. It’s a very exciting point in the company’s growth, moving out of the lab into the market.”
