Start-ups bring collaborative research opportunities to Discovery Park

A biomedical company and an alternative energy company have opened offices at Discovery Park. The offices create public-private partnerships intended to lead to groundbreaking technologies and provide a boost to the region’s economy and technology sector.

The two start-up companies - MedAutomate Diagnostics and Solar Logic - are collaborating with UNT professors and students to bring about innovations in medicine and energy. More about the companies: 

MedAutomate Diagnostics

Who: Alice Sesay-Bodie of Frisco is a founder of the company.

What: MedAutomate is working to commercialize a device that detects human diseases at the earliest stages using a nanotechnology platform initially developed by researchers at Texas A&M University. Company leaders have begun plans to use the nanotechnology platform for detecting cardiac arrest, early-stage breast cancer and traumatic brain injury. The MedAutomate platform would enable physicians to make diagnoses faster and more accurately.

UNT collaborations: The company is working with four professors from the College of Business.

Solar Logic

Who: Greg Bohl and Drew Springer of Muenster. Bohl is chief executive officer. Springer, an alumnus who received an accounting degree, is chief operating officer.

What: Solar Logic has created an affordable way to harvest solar energy and produce electricity. Companies can install a compact, rooftop continuous solar power system and can see a return on investment in six months to three years, depending on location and available energy rebates. Solar Logic plans to have the technology commercialized in the third quarter of 2011.

UNT collaborations: Solar Logic is working with two professors from the College of Engineering and hired five student interns in summer.
