Three College of Natural Sciences students recently won a top prize in the Celebration of Innovation Challenge: The Seed Pitch, hosted by the Berthiaume Center for Entrepreneurship!
Pitched by Hadley Beauregard (biochemistry and molecular biology), Hailey Charest (biochemistry and molecular biology) and Bryanna Lexus Freitas (chemistry and psychology), Bac-Be-Gone focuses on MRSA, an antibiotic resistant superbug that kills hundreds of thousands of people a year in hospitals across the world. The Bac-Be-Gone venture will produce products that immediately eliminate MRSA on contact. The team was awarded $5,000 in equity-free funding. Congratulations!
