CEO at MouSensor, Inc.
Location: New York, New York, United States
Dr. Charlotte D'Hulst was trained in bioengineering at the University of Leuven, Belgium and completed her doctoral studies at the University of Antwerp, Belgium in the Center of Medical Genetics. In 2009, she started working on the enigmatic sense of smell with Prof. Paul Feinstein at Hunter College of the City University of New York. Together with Dr. Feinstein, she pioneered the MouSensor technology that allows one to create customizable, transgenic super-sniffer mice (DíHulst et al., 2016). In 2016, she made the leap from academia to industry and co-founded MouSensor, Inc., an early-stage biotech startup developing a live nose-on-a-chip with the bold vision to detect, discover and digitize every single smell on this planet, including odors associated with diseases such as Parkinsonís disease. MouSensor, Inc. has secured an important research agreement with a world-renowned chip technology innovator to continue successful development of its nose-on-a-chip.
