Congratulations to PhD student Ajoeb Baridi (Stingl lab) who was a member of the University of Cambridge team that won this year’s Biotechnology Young Entrepreneurs (YES) scheme.

The team’s hypothetical company Calvitium Solutions won the top prize of £1,000 for their business idea for a hair loss prevention product. The competition was judged by a panel of experts from academia and industry. The team also won the prize for ‘Best consumer product’.

The team will now represent the UK in the International YES competition, which is taking place in Houston, Texas, in April.
